About the Book

Employment Discrimination: Procedure, Principles, and Practice offers a fresh perspective on employment discrimination law, presenting a procedural-based approach to the topic with interactive materials throughout the text. While still providing the traditional employment discrimination casebook coverage, this text emphasizes the importance of procedural issues in workplace cases.  It includes a unique “best practices” chapter which discusses the most effective ways to address workplace discrimination, from both a theoretical and legal perspective. Numerous exercises and problems foster classroom discussion. Practice tips situate students in the role of a practicing lawyer. Cases are modern and cutting-edge, demonstrating the importance of employment discrimination law. Each chapter includes a chapter-in-review, and summary charts and graphs are used throughout the text to further student comprehension. Text boxes within cases, historical notes, and news events are all effectively used to help bring the material to life in an innovative new way.
