|14-613||10th Cir.||Nov 30, 2015||May 23, 2016||7-1||Sotomayor||OT 2015|
Holding: (1) Because part of the "matter alleged to be discriminatory" in a constructive-discharge claim alleging discrimination in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is an employee's resignation, the forty-five-day limitations period for contacting an Equal Employment Opportunity counselor for such action (a prerequisite to filing a lawsuit alleging discrimination) begins running only after an employee resigns; and (2) a constructive-discharge claim accrues -- and the limitations period begins to run -- when the employee gives notice of his resignation, not on the effective date thereof.
Judgment: Vacated and remanded, 7-1, in an opinion by Justice Sotomayor on May 23, 2016. Justice Alito filed an opinion concurring in the judgment. Justice Thomas filed a dissenting opinion.
