Linda T. Prestegaard discussed the potential for employment litigation in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent cancellation of affirmative action policies in higher education admissions. The article, “Phillips Lytle Has Warning for Employers in Wake of Ruling on Affirmative Action in Higher Ed,” was featured in the New York Law Journal and notes that employers may still be caught in lawsuits over their diversity, equity and inclusion programs following the decision.

The ruling ended consideration of race as a factor in admitting students to colleges and universities. While the decision may not directly impact private employers, Linda says it could lead to lawsuits surrounding employers’ diversity, equity and inclusion programs.
