In perhaps the biggest employment case this term, the Supreme Court has held that a "but-for" standard - not the "mixed motive" analysis applies to retaliation claims under Title VII. In Nassar, the court resolved the Circuit split that developed after its 2009 decision in Gross v. FBL Financial Servs. Inc. Darrell VanDeusen discusses the Court's decision and considers its possible application to other anti-discrimination laws.
