Overview

Litigation of cases for race, sex, religious, and disability discrimination is complex and constantly evolving. For plaintiff and defense counsel, Civil Rights in the Workplace is an invaluable guide to the specific aspects of employment discrimination litigation under the antidiscrimination statutes and their progeny. Covering the scope of relevant legislation and analyzing Supreme Court cases in depth, Civil Rights in the Workplace addresses jury trials, compensatory and punitive damages, proof of disparate impact and treatment, theories of liability, statutes of limitations, attorneys' fees and costs, special problems of sex discrimination and disability discrimination, and more.

Civil Rights in the Workplace provides updated coverage of legislative and other developments and new case law, including:

  • New case law holding that sexual-orientation discrimination and transgender discrimination violate Title VII 
  • New case law considering discrimination against undocumented Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals migrants as a violation of Section 1981 
  • New case law on the threshold for discriminatory harassment 
  • New case law on the duty to mitigate damages

  • A New Supreme Court case on coverage of small state and local government employers by the Age Discrimination in Employment Act 
  • New analysis of the requirement to exhaust state and federal administrative remedies 
  • New case law on the threshold mental state for punitive damages 
  • New case law on jury instructions and jury interrogatories in disability retaliation cases
