But, first, I have a confession to make. I only read six posts.

Over here at the Ohio Employer Law Blog, Jon Hyman writes about a federal district judge who dismissed a plaintiff’s hostile work environment claim notwithstanding evidence of “daily or near daily” harassment with some of the worst ethnic slurs that you can imagine. Fortunately, the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals reversed and reinstated the action. Jon also posted about this case here on LinkedIn. There’s a lively debate in the comments if you’d like to participate.

I’ve written here about obesity as an ADA disability. Recently, the Seventh Circuit concluded that obesity alone is not a disability; although, obesity may be a symptom of an underlying ADA disability. Well, this LexBlog article highlights another recent opinion from the State of Washington in which its Supreme Court concluded that obesity is a disability under state anti-discrimination law. Translation: Your mileage may vary.

Here is another LexBlog post arguing that Illinois is the new California for employment law. This post on JD Supra argues that New York is the new California for employment law. Come on folks! It’s New Jersey.

Did I say top five posts? I meant four.

Have a nice day.
