Halunen Law attorney Susan Coler shared her expertise with SHRM reporter Leah Shepard on cases to be heard in the current U.S. Supreme Court session that impact employment law. These cases involve whether an involuntary transfer with no wage change can be retaliatory and whether a whistleblower must prove intent to retaliate in a case under SOX.
