A former waitress’s hostile work environment and retaliation claims under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act against the employer should go to a jury, the Richmond-based federal appellate court has ruled earlier this month in the case of Boyer-Liberto v. Fontainebleau Corp., No. 13-1473 (4th Cir. May 7, 2015) (en banc). The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, which has jurisdiction over Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and West Virginia, in a vote of 12 to 3 overruled previous rulings and held that a single comment or incident can be severe enough to trigger a hostile work environment lawsuit under federal law. This ruling signals a material shift in the way courts analyze employment discrimination claims and will likely make it more difficult for employers to defend against these types of lawsuits.
