Plaintiffs alleging discrimination have a limited time after the alleged discrimination took place to file a charge of discrimination. Plaintiffs filing outside the time period are unable to move forward with their claim. But when does the clock start in a case of constructive discharge where an employee’s working conditions become so intolerable that the employee feels compelled to resign? In a recent case, the U.S. Supreme Court held that the employee’s resignation triggered the limitations period for a constructive discharge claim. Although the employer argued that the worker’s claims were time barred because the clock started when the alleged discriminatory actions took place, the Supreme Court started the clock on the day the worker provided the employer with his notice of resignation. This decision means employees have a slightly longer window to file discrimination charges.
