Full Description


We granted certiorari, 474 U.S. 1047 (1985), and now affirm, but for different reasons. First, the language of Title VII is not limited to "economic" or "tangible" discrimination. Because I do not see any inconsistency between the two opinions, and because I believe the question of statutory construction that JUSTICE MARSHALL has answered is fairly presented by the record, I join both the Court's opinion and JUSTICE MARSHALL's opinion. The bank also denied respondent's allegations, and asserted that any sexual harassment by Taylor was unknown to the bank and engaged in without its consent or approval. … When respondent asked whether she might obtain employment at the bank, Taylor gave her an application, which she completed and returned the next day; later that same day, Taylor called her to say that she had been hired. Where, for example, a supervisor has no authority over an employee, because the two work in wholly different parts of the employer's business, it may be improper to find strict employer liability. Although the District Court concluded that respondent had not proved a violation of Title VII, it nevertheless went on to consider the question of the bank's liability. The District Court denied relief, but did not resolve the conflicting testimony about the existence of a sexual relationship between respondent and Taylor.   365, 377, 365 F.2d 898, 909 (1966). of Water and Power v.

Methodist Evangelical Hospital, Inc., 464 F.2d 723, 725 (CA6 1972). But the fact that sex-related conduct was "voluntary," in the sense that the complainant was not forced to participate against her will, is not a defense to a sexual harassment suit brought under Title VII. For NLRA cases, see, e.g., Graves Trucking, Inc. v. NLRB, 692 F.2d 470 (CA7 1982); NLRB v. Kaiser Agricultural Chemical, Division of Kaiser Aluminum & Chemical Corp., 473 F.2d 374, 384 (CA5 1973); Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America v. NLRB, 124 U.S.App.D.C. Decided June 19, 1986.

In defining "sexual harassment," the Guidelines first describe the kinds of workplace conduct that may be actionable under Title VII. Ibid. ., that relationship was a voluntary one." Please take a moment to review my edit. The question remains, however, whether the District Court's ultimate finding that respondent "was not the victim of sexual harassment," 22 EPD § 30,708, at 14,692-14,693, 23 FEP Cases, at 43, effectively disposed of respondent's claim. 243 U.S. App. As respondent points out, this suggested rule is in some tension with the EEOC Guidelines, which hold an employer liable for the acts of its agents without regard to notice.

No. Finally, we reject petitioner's view that the mere existence of a grievance procedure and a policy against discrimination, coupled with respondent's failure to invoke that procedure, must insulate petitioner from liability. In Rogers, the Court of Appeals for the Fifth. (b) The District Court's findings were insufficient to dispose of respondent's "hostile environment" claim. Meritor Savings Bank v Vinson was a court case that brought the Supreme Court to decide that certain forms of sexual harassment do in fact violate the Civil Rights Act of 1964 Title VII. 444, 456, n. 12, 641 F.2d 934, 946, n. 12 (1981).

Where a complainant, on the other hand, seeks backpay on the theory that a hostile work environment effected a constructive termination, the existence of an internal complaint procedure may be a factor in determining not the employer's liability but the remedies available against it. -142 (1976), quoting Skidmore v. Swift & Co., When respondent asked whether she might obtain employment at the bank, Taylor gave her an application, which she completed and returned the next day; later that same day Taylor called her to say that she had been hired.

Moreover, the bank's grievance procedure apparently required an employee to complain first to her supervisor, in this case Taylor. Begin typing to search, use arrow keys to navigate, use enter to select. The court then surmised that the District Court's finding of voluntariness might have been based on "the voluminous testimony regarding respondent's dress and personal fantasies," testimony that the Court of Appeals believed "had no place in this litigation."

PETITIONER:Meritor Savings Bank, FSB RESPONDENT:Vinson.

Supreme Court of the United States ----- ♦ ----- BCI COCA-COLA BOTTLING COMPANY OF LOS ANGELES, Petitioner, ... Meritor Savings Bank, FSB v. Vinson, 477 U.S. 57, 70 (1986). The answer supplied by general Title VII law, like that supplied by federal labor law, is that the act of a supervisory employee or agent is imputed to the employer. (a) The language of Title VII is not limited to "economic" or "tangible" discrimination. To the contrary, such evidence is obviously relevant. An employer whose internal procedures assertedly would have redressed the discrimination can avoid injunctive relief by employing these procedures after receiving notice of the complaint or during the conciliation period. As the Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit wrote in Henson v. Dundee, 682 F.2d 897, 902 (1982): "Sexual harassment which creates a hostile or offensive environment for members of one sex is every bit the arbitrary barrier to sexual equality at the workplace that racial harassment is to racial equality. In this Essay, Professor White argues that the Supreme Court finally has merged analysis of sexual harassment law with other claims of intentional discrimination. In Meritor Savings Bank v. Vinson, 477 U.S. 57 (1986), the Supreme Court recognized for the first time that sexual harassment is a violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.. As discussed in an earlier post, Title VII protects employees from workplace discrimination “because of” sex. * Respondent testified that, during her probationary period as a teller-trainee, Taylor treated her in a fatherly way and made no sexual advances. See Horn v. Duke Homes, Inc., Div. The remedial provisions of Title VII were largely modeled on those of the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). It held that sexual harassment is not limited to quid pro quo harassment, where a woman is fired or financially punished for refusing a supervisor's sexual demands. at 328, 753 F.2d at 146. 243 U.S.App.D.C.

Bank of America, 600 F.2d 211, 213 (CA9 1979). . Since it appears that the District Court made its findings without ever considering the "hostile environment" theory of sexual harassment, the Court of Appeals' decision to remand was correct. . Accord, Katz v. Dole, 709 F.2d 251, 254-255 (CA4 1983); Bundy v. Jackson, 205 U.S.App.D.C. Meritor Savings Bank v. Vinson, 477 U.S. 57 (1986), is a US labor law case, where the United States Supreme Court, in a 9-0 decision, recognized sexual harassment as a violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Petitioner argues that respondent's failure to use its established grievance procedure, or to otherwise put it on notice of the alleged misconduct, insulates petitioner from liability for Taylor's wrongdoing. Vinson charged that she had constantly been subjected to sexual harassment by Taylor over her four years at the bank. Los Angeles Dept. It found instead that. ("It is without question that sexual harassment of female employees in which they are asked or required to submit to sexual demands as a condition to obtain employment or to maintain employment or to obtain promotions falls within protection of Title VII") (emphasis added). Those considerations, however, do not justify the creation of a special "notice" rule in hostile environment cases. Respondent's claim that any marginal relevance of the evidence in question was outweighed by the potential for unfair prejudice is the sort of argument properly addressed to the District Court. The principal argument in … Thus, for example, when a supervisor discriminatorily fires or refuses to promote a black employee, that act is, without more, considered the act of the employer. Argued March 25, 1986 Decided June 19, 1986 CERTIORARI TO THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA CIRCUIT *58 F. Robert Troll, Jr., argued the cause for petitioner.

The Supreme Court usually saves the biggest decisions for the end of its term. The Court of Appeals reversed and remanded. Nonetheless, Title VII remedies, such as reinstatement and backpay, generally run against the employer as an entity. The Solicitor General's position is untenable.

It’s decision extended the coverage of Title VII to go beyond “economic” and “tangible” discrimination, stating,… The brief filed by the Solicitor General on behalf of the United States and the EEOC in this case suggests that a different rule should apply when a supervisor's harassment "merely" results in a discriminatory work environment. For the same reason, absence of notice to an employer does not necessarily insulate that employer from liability.   Finally, respondent testified that, because she was afraid of Taylor, she never reported his harassment to any of his supervisors and never attempted to use the bank's complaint procedure. The harassment, the lawsuit said, began in 1974. While those facts are plainly relevant, the situation before us demonstrates why they are not necessarily dispositive. Decided June 19, 1986.

While "voluntariness" in the sense of consent is not a defense to such a claim, it does not follow that a complainant's sexually provocative speech or dress is irrelevant as a matter of law in determining whether he or she found particular sexual advances unwelcome.

Pp. § 1252(a)(2)(D Dates of Early Supreme Court Decisions and Arguments by Solicitor General Fried, Assistant Attorneys General Reynolds Surely, a requirement that a man or woman run a gauntlet of sexual abuse in return for the privilege of being allowed to work and make a living can be as demeaning and disconcerting as the harshest of racial epithets.".

The court held that a supervisor, whether or not he possesses the authority to hire, fire, or promote, is necessarily an "agent" of his employer for all Title VII purposes, since "even the appearance" of such authority may enable him to impose himself on his subordinates. Circuit held that a Hispanic complainant could establish a Title VII violation by demonstrating that her employer created an offensive work environment for employees by giving discriminatory service to its Hispanic clientele. While the District Court must carefully weigh the applicable considerations in deciding whether to admit evidence of this kind, there is no per se rule against its admissibility. One can readily envision working environments so heavily polluted with discrimination as to destroy completely the emotional and psychological stability of minority group workers.
