This paper discusses all of the substantive labor & employment law opinions issued by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit from October 1, 2015 through September 30, 2016.
The discussion of each case begins with an italicized summary of the court’s holding and is followed by a more detailed discussion of the facts and the court’s rationale. At the end of the more interesting cases is an “AUTHOR’S NOTE” that briefly provides my thoughts on the relative importance of the case and/or the case’s unusual or interesting aspects.
