Dale Burmeister, Anne Mcardle And Greg Lavoy Win Two Discrimination And Retaliation Cases In Michigan Court Of Appeals

The Michigan Court of Appeals has affirmed the dismissal of a case of alleged gender discrimination, harassment, and retaliation arising out of meetings held with a police officer regarding a uniform infraction and held that an “adverse employment action ‘must be more than a mere inconvenience’ and ‘there must be an objective basis for demonstrating that the employment action is adverse because a plaintiff’s subjective impressions are not controlling.'”

The Michigan Court of Appeals also affirmed summary disposition in a second case involving similar and other claims because there was a lack of an adverse employment action, the single actor doctrine applied, any inference of discrimination was refuted as a matter of law, and the conduct alleged did not constitute “sexual violence” or was not “sexual in nature.”
