Read Prof. Gilman’s article from Salon on the recent Supreme Court Labor Ruling
Michele Gilman, the Venable Professor of Law in the University of Baltimore School of Law and director of its Saul Ewing Civil Advocacy Clinic and co-director of the Center on Applied Feminism, writes in Salon that the Supreme Court’s decision in the Epic Systems Corp. v. Lewis case may exacerbate a number of hot-button topics in the American workplace, including the problem of unpaid hours and the misclassification of employees. The growing #MeToo movement also takes a hit from this decision, she says.
“As a law professor who directs a clinical legal program that regularly represents low-wage workers, I believe this ruling essentially allows employers to hide workplace injustices while also potentially making it harder for workers—including victims of sexual harassment—to find justice,” Prof. Gilman writes.
In her analysis of the decision’s ramifications, Gilman points to the influence of Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch, author of the majority opinion.
