Fourth Circuit opinion on hostile work environment and retaliation



By Chris Barrett

The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, which is based in Richmond, issued an opinion in a hostile work environment and retaliation case yesterday. The case is noteworthy, in part, because although the alleged harassment was isolated to a 24-hour period, the court held that a reasonable jury could find it serious enough to have created a discriminatory change in the terms and conditions of the employee’s employment. The case is also noteworthy because of its treatment of the employee’s retaliation claim. Full opinion here.
