NY court: Lousy workers deserve fair workplace too

AP foreign, Saturday April 27 2013

NEW YORK (AP) A federal appeals court in New York says even mediocre employees deserve protection from sexual harassment.

The ruling Friday by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals restores a $5 million lawsuit by Renee Mihalik (mih-HAW'-lihk) of Hoboken, N.J.

The court says there was substantial evidence that she performed her job poorly at Credit Agricole Cheuvreux North America Inc.

But it says a jury might find that her supervisor used her shortcomings as an excuse to humiliate and punish her for opposing his discriminatory behavior.

1. What do you mean I can't incentivize productivity by grabbing some under performing guy's crotch?

 

So unfair! This is what is wrong with America. Liberal socialist judges trying to stifle the rights of employers.
