The ninth edition of the best-selling Cases and Materials on Employment Discrimination blends cases, notes, and problems into an integrated pedagogy that balances scholarly and practice perspectives. The authors build a conceptual framework for understanding how discrimination is defined and proven in litigation. The text allows professors to explore particular interests more deeply and permits them to take not only a litigation approach but also explore the compliance, investigation, and counseling perspectives that are characteristic of modern practice. The broad coverage integrates scholarship with legal doctrine drawn from statutes and judicial decisions. The useful Statutory Supplement is available for separate purchase. Key Benefits: Young v. UPS (reconceptualizing pregnancy discrimination). Nassar v. Uni. of Texas Sw. Med. Ctr. (requiring but-for causation for Title VII retaliation claims) Vance v. Ball State Univ. (narrowing the definition of supervisor for purposes of employer liability for sexual harassment) EEOC v. Abercrombie & Fitch (reconceptualizing claims of religious discrimination). New circuit court decisions on sexual orientation discrimination under Title VII. Streamlined coverage. Materials have been reworked, thus reducing page count by 100 pages.

Toward the end of its 1988 term, the Supreme Court rendered a series of decisions that altered long-standing precedent in a number of areas of employment discrimination doctrine. Those decisions, most of which are included in this supplement as principal cases, and the revised note material necessitated by the changes in the law, account for the bulk of this supplement. The Court's employment discrimination decisions during the term of court that just ended are fewer in number and doctrinally less important that the previous year's cases. Those decisions are discussed in substantial detail, along with significant decisions from the lower courts, in the revised note material.-Pref.

Reflecting the dominate theme of workplace equality, the authors go beyond this general consensus to affirm that the fundamental purpose of laws prohibiting employment discrimination is to implement the national civil rights policy. Organized around an examination of the reach and limits of laws, the book scrutinizes the federal statutory protection against employment discrimination. Constitutional provisions and state laws are included where appropriate. In addition, this new edition extensively uses scholarship drawn from the work of critical race theorists and feminist legal scholars. It also has materials on the law and economics approach to employment discrimination.
