The World in U.S. Courts: Summer 2014 - Employment Discrimination
Plaintiff Davenport sued her employer for discrimination under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Her complaint was dismissed as to one defendant on grounds that it employed an insufficient number of employees in the U.S. to be subject to the statute. On a motion for reconsideration, the Court rejected Davenport’s argument that 45 employees working outside the U.S. should be deemed to be working in the U.S. for purposes of Title VII because of the extent of their communication with the U.S. via the Internet, telephone, and the U.S. Mail.
