Featured Employment Case

O’Connor v. Consolidated Coin Caterers Corp., (1996) 517 U.S. 308.

O’Connor v. Consolidated Coin Caterers Corp. was a United States Supreme Court case that addressed the issue of sexual harassment and employer liability under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The key facts of the case are as follows: Mechelle O’Connor, the plaintiff, was an employee of Consolidated Coin Caterers Corp. She alleged that she had been sexually harassed by a co-worker, John O’Leary. O’Connor claimed that O’Leary’s behavior created a hostile work environment, including sexual advances, offensive comments, and unwelcome sexual conduct. Consolidated Coin Caterers argued that they should not be held liable for O’Leary’s actions because they had an anti-harassment policy in place, and O’Connor did not follow the company’s complaint procedure. The central issue before the Supreme Court was whether an employer could be held liable for the actions of its employees in cases of sexual harassment under Title VII. In its decision, the Supreme Court established the standard for employer liability in cases of hostile work environment sexual harassment. The Court held that an employer is subject to vicarious liability for actionable discrimination caused by a co-worker when the co-worker is an employee acting within the scope of their employment. However, the employer has an affirmative defense available if it can show that: 1. It exercised reasonable care to prevent and promptly correct any harassing behavior, and 2. The plaintiff employee unreasonably failed to take advantage of the preventive or corrective opportunities provided by the employer. The Court found that Consolidated Coin Caterers could not be held liable for O’Connor’s harassment claims because the company had taken reasonable steps to prevent and correct harassment through its anti-harassment policy, and O’Connor did not utilize the available complaint procedures. This case is significant because it established the standard for employer liability in cases of co-worker sexual harassment and highlighted the importance of employer anti-harassment policies and the duty of employees to use available complaint procedures.
