Legg v. Ulster County, No. 14-3636 (2d Cir. Apr. 26, 2016); Cooper v. N.Y. State Dep't of Labor, No. 15-3392 (2d Cir. Apr. 26, 2016)

Today's Two-fer Tuesday in the Second Circuit: a pregnancy discrimination case is returned for retrial, in light of the intervening decision in Young v. United Parcel Service, Inc., 135 S. Ct. 1338 (2015); and a panel holds that a state human-resource professional's opposition to changes in the EEO complaint-reporting procedures is not a "protected activity" under Title VII.

Szeinbach v. The Ohio State Univ., No. 15-3016 (6th Cir. Apr. 20, 2016)

The Sixth Circuit holds, in an opinion that potentially expands remedies for Title VII claimants, that a back-pay award may include amounts that an employee could have earned from alternative employment, had the employer not engaged in discrimination or retaliation. Nonetheless, the court holds that the employee in this particular case failed to prove that she suffered such damages.

EEOC v. Rite Way Service, Inc., No. 15-60380 (5th Cir. Apr. 8, 2016)

The Fifth Circuit affirms that an employee interviewed as part of a company's internal investigation into sex harassment complaints is protected under the "opposition" prong of the anti-retaliation section of Title VII. Yet it also holds that the witness must manifest at least a "reasonable belief" that what she witnessed rose to a violation of that act.

U.S. WOMEN'S SOCCER TEAM DEMANDS EQUAL PAY FOR EQUAL WORK

Last week, the U.S. women's national soccer team (USWNT), represented by five of its top players, filed a complaint of wage discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), alleging that U.S. Soccer players on the men's national team are paid as much as four times that of their female counterparts on the women's national team.
