In addition to serving on the ASA board of directors, she also serves as vice chairman of the inclusion, diversity, and equity advocacy (IDEA) group council and is a member of the ASA women in leadership interest group council, as well as the ASA Texas Network council. In addition, Wesley has completed two cycles as a mentor in the ASA Mentor Match program and has participated as a facilitator and panelist at ASA events.

Indiana Court Rules That Temporary Employee’s Exclusion From Preferred Work District Not Unlawful

In a ruling favorable to the staffing industry, an Indiana federal court ruled that a staffing agency temporary employee did not suffer an “adverse employment action” under Title VII or the Age Discrimination in Employment Act when the staffing agency excluded him from substitute teaching assignments in his preferred school district after that school district lodged a complaint against him.

When students at an elementary school complained about the employee, the school informed the staffing agency of the incident and requested the agency not place the employee at future assignments within its school district. The staffing agency investigated the incident and could not substantiate the allegations, but prohibited the employee from future assignments in the school district.

The employee filed suit but the court granted the staffing agency’s motion to dismiss, noting that just because the employee had to travel further from his home for new teaching assignments, this did not mean he suffered an adverse employment action.

To read the case, see John George Hunt v. Kelly Services Inc., 2022 WL 4259946 (S.D. Ind. 2022).
