  • Title VII's antidiscrimination provisions preclude retaliation against an employee who takes a protected action, including reporting sexual harassment or discrimination to an employer. However, simply taking such an action does not necessarily protect an otherwise underperforming employee from adverse employment action according to a recent decision by the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Kasper v. Federated Mutual Insurance Company, 8th Cir., No. 04-3437, October 4, 2005.
