Release Date: 2010
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.

Service users often say that the traits they most value in social workers are their ability to be non-judgmental, their listening skills and their sense of fairness: their strong ethical value base.

By assessing a range of dilemmas at both personal and organisational levels, this book offers the tools and resources to enable professionals and students to self-manage and develop their practice. This book is essential reading for social work students, practitioners, managers, practice teachers and assessors, and trainers, as well as those in allied professions.
