On April 11, 2014, I had the privilege of speaking at the 39th Annual Labor and Employment Law Institute sponsored by the Institute for Continuing Legal Education (ICLE). The topic was Anatomy of a Whistleblower Retaliation Lawsuit. We used the fact pattern from the case Thompson v Aramark School Support Services, 490 F.3d 506 (6th Cir. 2007), to discuss an insider's perspective from the plaintiff's, defendant's and human resource professional's point of view. Bos & Glazier represented Ms. Thompson at a jury trial after she represented herself in an appeal of the case to the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals. The District Court had originally dismissed the case and the case was reinstated for trial following the appeal. Rob Howard - a Bos & Glazier law clerk - assisted with the preparation of written materials used in connection with the seminar.
