Major Issues in the Federal Law of Employment Discrimination

Federal Judicial Center


An examination of the substantive and procedural provisions of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This fifth edition discusses the many and varied developments in the law through June 2011. The field of employment discrimination law continues to expand to cover new forms of discrimination and additional employment practices. Both new judicial decisions and new legislation have addressed the issues in this field in increasing detail. The book covers such issues as claims of disparate treatment and disparate impact, affirmative action, and discrimination on the basis of sex, national origin, and religion. Other federal remedies for employment discrimination are also discussed. A bibliography of works the author considers most useful to judges and lawyers in the field is included.
