¶ … decision -- federal or state court -- where an employer was found NOT GUILTY of violating one of our chief laws (EEO, ADA, EPA, ADEA, etc. - -).

In Linda Tatom v. Res-Care, Inc., No. 14-6125 (10th Cir., Jan. 24, 2015), the teacher Linda Tatom was an at-will employee of the Guthrie Job Corps Center (GJCC). After being involved in an altercation with a male trainee, she was allowed to go home for the day. Tatom refused to return to GJCC until the trainee was removed.
