Employers are expected to face more retaliation claims due to a recent United States Supreme Court decision which adopted a broader definition of anti-retaliation provisions Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The act forbids an employer from firing, demoting or harassing employees that complain about discrimination on the job.

Under the ruling the provision now applies to any "employer actions that would have been materially adverse to a reasonable employee or job applicant".
