Court Rules Man Who Claims He Endured Anti-Semitic Slurs Can Sue Despite Not Being Jewish
Gregg Salka was quoted in an article on www.nj.com.
In a case employment experts say expands the interpretation of the state’s anti-discrimination law, an appeals court has ruled that a man who alleges he endured anti-Semitic slurs can sue his former supervisors — even though he is not Jewish.
Gregg said employers should be wary of the precedent set by the ruling.
"Anyone can pretty much bring a claim, even if they’re not a member of a protected class," he said. "It moves the focus more towards the discriminatory comments rather than the actual characteristic of the plaintiff."
