Supreme Court of the United States.

Decided June 28, 1982.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

John R. Wester argued the cause for petitioner. With him on the briefs were Robert L. Stern, H. R. Nolte, Jr., and Stephen D. Bolerjack.

JUSTICE O'CONNOR delivered the opinion of the Court.

This case presents the question whether an employer charged with discrimination in hiring can toll the continuing accrual of backpay liability under § 706(g) of Title VII, 42 U. S. C. § 2000e-5(g), simply by unconditionally offering the claimant the job previously denied, or whether the employer also must offer seniority retroactive to the date of the alleged discrimination.1
