Parker v. Boulevard Motel Corp., 15-2012

In a suit brought by former employees of motel corporation-defendant, alleging that defendant fired them in violation of the Maine Whistleblowers' Protection Act (MWPA) and the Maine Human Rights Act (MHRA), the District Court's grant of summary judgment to defendant, relying on a purported 'job duties exception' to both statutes, is reversed where this Court's intervening decision in Harrison v. Granite Bay Care, Inc., 811 F.3d 36 (1st Cir. 2016), made clear that no 'job duties exception' exists under either the MWPA or, by implication, the MHRA.
