Retaliation against an employee that reports discrimination, that files a charge of discrimination or expresses opposition to discrimination violates both federal and Kentucky state law.  But does the law protect family members of an employee that reports discrimination, etc.?

The Supreme Court has agreed to decide the scope of the retaliation prohibition under federal law reports the New York Times, "Court To Decide Limits on Retaliation Ban."  The case, Thompson v. North American Stainless, No 09-291, originates at the North American Stainless plan in Carroll County, Kentucky. 

You can learn more about this case at the Kentucky Employment Law Blog by Robert Abell: "Supreme Court To Decide Whether Retaliation Ban Applies to Family Members and Others Closely Assoiciated With An Employee that Complains of Discrimination."
