In two big employment law cases, the U.S. Supreme Court has made it harder for employees to bring discrimination suits about workplace harassment and retaliation.

Actually it makes sense, otherwise bullying becomes discrimination.

Perhaps Scalia, Kennedy, Thomas, Roberts, and Alito should just change the preamble of the Constitution to start with "We, the Corporations..." so that their collective dystopian dream can come true even more quickly. Words cannot describe how much I despise those dirty old men!

The only thing this ruling does is side with Corporations, for more protections for the Corporations. This makes it even more difficult to for employees to speak up for themselves, bring a complaint or get direct action on a complaint.

It's interesting. I think clarification by Congress, written into Title 7 is definitely in order for the first one. Owners need to know the limits of due diligence, or the law is impossible to reasonably follow. As for the second, it looks to me like it just shifts the burden of proof from the accused back to the accuser, where it should be.

Noted. Thanks, Cal. They rule against workers, then toss the masses a bone a couple days later by striking down DOMA....so maybe we won't notice, or have time to disseminate their continued descent into fascism.
