Coauthored by two reporters from the recently released Restatement on Employment Law, this casebook provides considerable flexibility for an instructor teaching employment discrimination law, employment law, or a combination of both topics. It includes an in-depth treatment of Title VII, the ADA, and the ADEA, as well as a new chapter on discrimination against sexual minorities. It introduces the concept of employment-at-will, and contractual and tort-based exceptions. This casebook also provides an overview of laws relating to workplace injuries and employee benefits, as well as chapters on wage and hour law and employee classification or misclassification. It also includes a chapter on employee duties to the employer. A chapter on privacy reflects recent legislative initiatives at the state level, and an analysis of electronic intrusions by the employer. Interspersed throughout are "Practitioner Perspectives," in which leading practitioners describe their day-to-day work and area of specialization. Cases are accompanied by notes that test a student's basic understanding of the material (labeled "Test Your Understanding of the Material"), as well as informative notes providing context. The casebook comes with a Teacher's Manual containing case briefs and answers to notes. Also, adopting professors have access to an extensive website containing teaching materials, exercises, and lesson plans. Adopters may request a login for the website here.

Tracking the field as it is practiced by employment lawyers on both the plaintiff and defense sides, this casebook provides a one-semester treatment of the full range of employment discrimination laws as well as the core subjects of an employment law offering. Coverage includes the following: laws designed to protect individuals from discriminatory employment decisions; the extent to which the law prevents employers from retaliating against employees for filing claims, reporting misdeeds or other activity that our society highly values or seeks to protect; the common law of the employment relationship; the enactment of wage-hour, pension and other "minimum terms" laws to establish regulatory floors for private negotiation of employment contracts; and the procedural design of regulatory systems, including in-depth consideration of class actions, preemption and arbitration issues. It has been updated with all recent leading cases, newly enacted statutes, including the ADAAA, and integration of recently completed and membership-approved chapters of the Restatement of Employment Law on employment contract, employment torts and employee duties. PowerPoint Slides are available to adopting professors.

Coauthored by two reporters from the recently released Restatement on Employment Law, this casebook provides rigorous coverage of all major areas of employment discrimination law. It includes chapters examining disparate treatment and disparate impact under Title VII and the ADEA. The casebook covers sex discrimination in depth, and includes a new chapter on discrimination against sexual minorities. A separate chapter is devoted to the ADA and the duty of reasonable accommodation. The casebook also examines religious discrimination, affirmative action, and retaliation for the assertion of statutory rights.
