Employment discrimination law is like a huge jigsaw puzzle—albeit one with many missing and mismatched pieces, which are constantly being changed. The purpose of Understanding Employment Discrimination Law is to clarify the differences, uncertainty, and complexity of employment discrimination law. The Second Edition deals with all the watershed Supreme Court decisions since 2002 and otherwise expands and updates the coverage of the prior edition.

Understanding Employment Law strikes a balance between comprehensiveness and selectivity. It provides the substantive material needed to succeed in practice and in the classroom and on final examinations, without overwhelming the reader with details that are unduly esoteric or tangential. The book begins first with common-law employment doctrines such as employment-at-will, employment contracts, employment torts, workplace privacy issues, and restrictive covenants. It then turns to federal and state statutory regulation of the workplace, covering topics such as compensation (including wage and hour legislation and unemployment insurance), employee benefits (including leave time, pensions, and health insurance), and workplace safety legislation.

There is still much to learn about fundamental aspects of employment discrimination law as a social system. What drives the growing demand for litigation? To what extent does discrimination persist in subtle but pervasive forms and what explains how it varies by organizational and market context? How do different groups of workers perceive the extent to which they are discriminated against and what, if anything, do they do about it? How have employers responded to discrimination law? How is employment discrimination law affected by broader political and legal currents? What is the relationship between anti-discrimination law and patterns of social inequality?The chapters in this unique collection grapple with many of these issues. Questions of this scope require interdisciplinary scholarship; and this volume includes original contributions from many of the legal scholars, economists, psychologists, sociologists, political scientists, and historians who are at the forefront of new research on discrimination and law. The Handbook of Employment Discrimination Research encompasses critical discussions across different social science disciplines, as well as between legal scholars and social scientists. As a collection, the chapters suggest a broad reconsideration of employment discrimination and its treatment in law.

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.
