SUPREME COURT RULING TO PROTECT WORKER FIRED AFTER PARTICIPATING IN INTERNAL SEXUAL HARASSMENT INVESTIGATION

Metro Government of Nashville that federal law protects a worker from being fired after telling investigators in an internal company investigation about sexual harassment on the job.

The ruling was written by Justice David H. Souter and is available here.
