Title VII ADA ADEA ERISA) For example our May 11 2012 post analyzed whether a physician with privileges at a New York hospital was an employee or an independent contractor for purposes of a Title VII sexual harassment action (employees are protected under Title VII whereas independent contractors are not) And on November 27 2012 we blogged about whether a church music director/employee was a “minister” for purposes of the music director’s ADEA and ADA lawsuit against the church/employer (the “ministerial exception” prohibits the application of federal anti-discrimination laws to claims concerning employee relationships between a religious institution and its ministers) In a similar vein the US Supreme Court recently declined to review a Third Circuit decision that a partial owner of a closely held family-owned company was not an “employee” under Title VII and therefore could not pursue a religious discrimination claim against the family business Family Feud The facts of the case involve a building supply company that was originally started by the “founding father” in 1947 Then in the 1960s the founding father’s three sons joined the business as co-owners Over time annual sales skyrocketed from less than $250000 to over $60 million The plaintiff was one of the three sons and co-owners of the company He was a member of the company’s board of directors an officer and a shareholder Additionally the division of the company that the plaintiff had oversight responsibility for earned a profit of more than $15 million over the six-year period immediately preceding his termination of employment In 1995 the plaintiff had a “spiritual awakening” This new found spirituality according to the plaintiff resulted in a systemic pattern of antagonism toward him He claimed that the company’s officers directors and certain employees targeted the plaintiff with negative hostile and humiliating statements about him and his religious affiliation Matters came to a head after the founding father passed away On January 6 2009 the plaintiff delivered a eulogy that included comments about his own faith and his father’s good example Members of the family were according to the plaintiff upset by the eulogy Two days later on January 8 2009 the shareholders of the company convened a meeting in the plaintiff’s absence and decided to terminate his employment The plaintiff’s termination letter explained that his employment had ended effective immediately but also pointed out that he would continue to receive his company “draws” and distributions The plaintiff remained on the company’s board of directors until August 6 2009 when the shareholders chose not to re-elect him to the board Shortly thereafter the plaintiff filed suit in federal court under Title VII asserting among others claims of religious discrimination and a hostile work environment In response the company filed a motion with the court at a very early stage of the litigation to dismiss the plaintiff’s lawsuit on the grounds that the plaintiff wasn’t an “employee” for purposes of Title VII and therefore wasn’t protected by the statute The company won on its motion at the lower court The Third Circuit Weighs In On appeal the Third Circuit upheld the lower court’s decision and found in favor of the company In reaching its conclusion the Third Circuit relied on the six-factor test that was articulated by the US Supreme Court in Clackamas Gastroenterology Associates PC v Wells The six factors which are used by both the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the courts to determine whether partners officers members of boards of directors and major shareholders qualify as “employees” under federal anti-discrimination laws are as follows: Using these Clackamas factors the Third Circuit determined that the plaintiff was not an “employee” for purposes of Title VII That is the plaintiff as a shareholder board member and officer of the company as well as being an individual who had the right to exert control over company operations and participate in fundamental business decisions was an employer for purposes of Title VII As a result he was not an “employee” entitled to invoke the protections available under Title VII But Wait There’s More…US Supreme Court Declines to Review Third Circuit’s Decision After losing at both the district court and the court of appeals the plaintiff tried to plead his case before the US Supreme Court No such luck there either as the Supreme Court denied the plaintiff’s petition to review his case In his petition to the Supreme Court the plaintiff argued that his case was factually different than Clackamas because the plaintiff worked at a traditional corporation whereas the company at issue in Clackamas was a professional corporation (specifically an incorporated group of gastroenterologists) The other factual difference that the plaintiff raised in his petition was that in his case the owners of the company engaged in the discriminatory acts whereas in Clackamas the alleged acts of discrimination weren’t committed by any of the owners Clearly the Supreme Court wasn’t moved by the plaintiff’s arguments and the plaintiff’s petition for review was denied As a result the Third Circuit’s decision and analysis are no longer subject to reversal by the high court and the plaintiff as an employer isn’t protected under Title VII Main Takeaways for Employers As noted in prior blog entries the coverage and application of federal anti-discrimination laws is neither automatic nor absolute This case helpfully clarifies that the Clackamas “control” factors apply to a wide variety of “traditional” business entities not just professional corporations Just as important this case also explains that the definition of “employer” and “employee” in certain federal anti-discrimination laws are relevant in resolving two key issues: (1) whether an individual is an “employee” who may invoke statutory protections against discrimination and (2) whether an entity qualifies as an “employer” under the anti-discrimination statutes With respect to the latter issue bear in mind that many federal employment laws aren’t triggered until the employer hits a particular employee “numerosity” threshold Here are a few examples: Reference: Mariotti v Mariotti Bldg Prods, But the industrialists are
