Littler Shareholder Stephen Tedesco weighs in on Miller v. Department of Corrections. The July 2005 California Supreme Court decision held that a supervisor showing favoritism toward an employee with whom he or she is having a consensual sexual relationship can create a hostile workplace. The decision allows California employees not involved in the relationship to seek damages under TItle VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 for sexual harassment. Tedesco and fellow attorneys dissect the ruling and offer advice for preventing similar lawsuits.
