February 27, 2017



On February 21, 2017, a federal court in Wisconsin reaffirmed a tribe's sovereign immunity with respect to Title VII claims of wrongful termination. See Bruguier v. Du Flambeau, 16-cv-604-jdp, (W. Dist Wisc. February 21, 2017). The court found, among other things, that tribes do not waive their sovereign immunity when they incorporate federal labor laws into their tribal code.
