A chapter on privacy reflects recent legislative initiatives at the state level, and an analysis of electronic intrusions by the employer.

This casebook covers all major aspects of employment discrimination law, including benchmark legislative, administrative, and judicial developments. Due in part to frequent updates and revisions, it has received accolades as one of the most comprehensive and frequently updated texts on the market. The 13th Edition continues this tradition by seamlessly incorporating all major legislative and judicial developments through July 2020, including all relevant decisions rendered by the Supreme Court in its 2019-2020 term. In its most significant ruling, Bostock v. Clayton Country Georgia, the Court brought closure and clarity to an issue that the federal courts had struggled with for decades; holding that Title VII's ban on sex-based discrimination extends to claims of discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, transgender status, and all other forms of gender identity. It resolved another circuit conflict in Comcast Corp. v. National Ass'n of African American-Owned Media, by ruling that mixed motive analysis is not available in suits brought under §1981. In Our Lady of Guadalupe School v. Morrissey-Berru, the Court expanded upon its prior articulation of the standard to be applied in determining whether a religious entity's employee constituted a "minister" for purposes of invoking the "church-minister" exception. And in Babb v. Wilkie, the Court held that federal employees, unlike private sector and nonfederal public employees, could assert a mixed motive claim to establish liability under the ADEA, but were required to prove that age was the "but for" cause of the alleged discriminatory act in order to obtain affirmative relief. Finally, among the lower court decisions added in this edition is Rizo v. Yovino, an important Equal Pay Act opinion by the Ninth Circuit sitting en banc which examines whether the use of market forces as a basis for setting salaries is a nondiscriminatory factor other than sex.

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.
