About the Book

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 (prolific, highly visible scholars in the field) 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 compliance, investigation, and counseling perspectives 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. 

The Eighth Edition introduces new Supreme Court cases, including Wal-Mart, Staub v. Proctor Hospital, North American Stainless, and Hosanna-Tabor.  The disabilities chapter has been revised in light of the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments. A new chapter deals solely with retaliation to reflect the heightened importance of such protection. Notes have been streamlined to enhance student accessibility.
