Swirsky Quoted on Recent Supreme Court Decisions that Favor Employers

Employment Law 360

Steven M. Swirsky, a Member of the Firm in the Labor and Employment and Health Care and Life Sciences practices in the New York office, was quoted in a June 12, 2007, Employment Law360 article on several high-profile Supreme Court decisions that favored employers.

The article, "Supreme Court Decisions Rouse Debate," noted that recent wins for employers in cases including Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., Inc. and Beck v. Pace International Union were not a sign of employee hostility but a move by the Supreme Court toward more conservative interpretations of the law.

"I can see how if you look at them, [the decisions] might signal a trend," said Swirsky. "But when you parse through them more closely, you'll find that they really turn out to be questions of deferral to administrative agencies."
