Issue: Employment
Court: U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit

RLC's Position:
The RLC supported the employer’s motion to dismiss at the trial stage in this case where the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) sued the employer alleging that its standard-form separation agreement violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. The motion was granted and the EEOC appealed. The RLC filed a brief asking the 7th Circuit to affirm the lower court’s dismissal of the case and provided practical examples of how standard-form separation agreements benefit both the employer and the employee.

Case Outcome: 
The Court affirmed the district court's judgment.
