Diocesan central office staff, principals, pastors, and other chief executive officers face personnel and hiring decisions regularly. Dismissal of employees and nonrenewal of contracts often result in protracted litigation. This article reviews recent case law in a variety of employment issues, including dismissal or firing of contracted employees, nonrenewal of contracts, racial discrimination, age discrimination, disability discrimination, sex or gender discrimination, sexual harassment, and the right of workers to organize. The author concludes with an appeal to Catholic leaders to stay well informed of ongoing developments in employment law and calls for the implementation of arbitration to avoid costly litigation.
