DESCRIPTION

The premier treatise on the law of discrimination in the workplace

For more than 35 years, Employment Discrimination Law has been the definitive treatise in this complex and highly detailed area of law. The new Fifth Edition of Employment Discrimination Law provides updated analysis of changes and significant new developments since the previous supplement, including rewritten chapters on EEOC Administrative Processes and Federal Contractor Affirmative Action Compliance.

The Fifth Edition offers substantial revisions and updates to many chapters, covering:

  • Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., Inc., where the Supreme Court’s decision on the Title VII statute of limitations accrual date for pay discrimination claims sparked passage of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009, the first act of Congress signed into law by President Barack Obama
  • The Supreme Court’s rulings expanding the breadth of retaliation claims
  • The Supreme Court’s decision in Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. v. Dukes, addressing Title VII class actions
  • The impact of the Supreme Court’s multiple decisions on the viability of agreements to arbitrate employment disputes

In addition, in most chapters, footnotes now focus almost exclusively on decisions by the Supreme Court and the U.S. Courts of Appeals, avoiding cumulative and space-consuming citations, with the exception that district court decisions have been retained in instances where they constitute an important part of the developing case law (such as under newer statutes) and in fields such as procedure and evidence where there is little appellate authority.

Throughout this treatise, legal specialists from the management, plaintiff, union, and public practice perspective provide a balanced presentation of the labor and employment issues surrounding discrimination in the workplace. The new Fifth Edition offers the most comprehensive coverage and unbiased analysis of employment discrimination law available anywhere.


The 2015 Cumulative Supplement includes analysis of:

  • Employers’ duty to recognize the need for accommodation of religious beliefs or practices after the Supreme Court’s decision in Abercrombie & Fitch
  • The limited extent of judicial inquiry into review for sufficiency of EEOC’s good faith efforts at conciliation (notwithstanding the statutory provision prohibiting disclosure of what is said and done during conciliation) that is permitted by the Supreme Court’s decision in Mach Mining
  • The manner in which the McDonnell Douglas burden-shifting model is to be applied to employees requesting an accommodation on the basis of pregnancy after the Supreme Court’s Young v. UPS decision
