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
