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.

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.

Genre: Law

Mastering Employment Discrimination Law seeks to strike a balance between comprehensiveness and selectivity. It provides both the procedural and substantive material needed to succeed in practice, in the classroom, and on final examinations, without overwhelming the reader with details that are unduly esoteric or tangential. The book begins first with coverage and jurisdiction issues surrounding employment discrimination law. It then turns to federal and state procedural topics surrounding the filing of administrative charges of discrimination and civil lawsuits. Finally, the book addresses comprehensively the substantive aspects of Title VII, ADEA, ADA (including the new ADAAA), Equal Pay Act, and the Civil Rights Acts, covering topics such as disparate treatment discrimination (including single- and mixed-motive claims, as well as the BFOQ defense), disparate impact discrimination, and related issues, such as remedies, attorney fees, and settlements.
