Carlton Fields labor and employment attorney Rae T. Vann was quoted in a Bloomberg Daily Labor Report article about Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s record in labor and employment law. Barrett’s past rulings show a textualist approach similar to that of Justice Antonin Scalia, with some outcomes in favor of employers and others in favor of workers, Vann said.
“I expect she will be similar to him. He wasn’t 100% with the employer in all employment cases,” Vann told the publication. “Nothing struck me in her record as outlandish. She didn’t upend precedent and seemed to cite text and precedent.”
