Featured Employment Case

E.E.O.C. v. Crown Zellerbach Corp., 720 F.2d 1008 (9th Cir. 1983)

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and suspended black employees appealed from ruling of the United States District Court for the Central District of California, Lawrence T. Lydick, J., that disciplinary suspensions imposed on the employees did not violate opposition clause of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The Court of Appeals, Fletcher, Circuit Judge, held that the suspended employees’ conduct in writing a letter to local school board, a customer of employer, protesting an affirmative action award to employer was a permissible form of protected opposition to discriminatory practices.  the Court’s opinion provided in part as follows: Plaintiff has burden of proving a prima facie case of discrimination based on opposition to an unlawful employment practice by showing that he has engaged in statutorily protected expression, that he has suffered an adverse employment action, and that there is a causal link between the protected expression and the adverse action; if plaintiff succeeds in proving the prima facie case, burden shifts to defendant to articulate some legitimate, nondiscriminatory reason for the adverse employment action; if defendant carries that burden, plaintiff has opportunity to prove by preponderance of the evidence that stated reason was not defendant’s true reason for acting, but a pretext for discrimination. For an employee’s statement to be protected under opposition clause of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, it cannot be “opposed to an unlawful employment practice” unless it refers to some practice by employer that is allegedly unlawful; it is not necessary, however, that the practice be demonstrably unlawful since opposition clause protection will be accorded whenever the opposition is based on a “reasonable belief” that employer has engaged in an unlawful employment practice
