The new edition keeps readers abreast of recent developments, assesses what they hold for the future of employment discrimination law, and introduces the issues in a field of continuing vitality and controversy.

The ninth edition of 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 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 explore the compliance, investigation, and counseling perspectives that are 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. Key Benefits: Young v. UPS (reconceptualizing pregnancy discrimination). Nassar v. Uni. of Texas Sw. Med. Ctr. (requiring but-for causation for Title VII retaliation claims) Vance v. Ball State Univ. (narrowing the definition of supervisor for purposes of employer liability for sexual harassment) EEOC v. Abercrombie & Fitch (reconceptualizing claims of religious discrimination). New circuit court decisions on sexual orientation discrimination under Title VII. Streamlined coverage. Materials have been reworked, thus reducing page count by 100 pages.

Students will be better prepared for professional life if they leave law school with an ability to conceptualize legal theory, a sensitivity to the contexts in which legal rules operate and a concrete understanding of the lawyer's role as a professional problem solver. While retaining the methods used in traditional legal education, this text uses numerous exercises designed to engage students beyond the realm of traditional legal reasoning and to develop a core skill set crucial to employment discrimination attorneys. Employment Discrimination: A Context and Practice Casebook asks students to view legal problems through different lenses, from the perspective of a plaintiff's lawyer, a judge, an in-house counsel, a defense attorney, a victim of discrimination, a person accused of discrimination, a human resources professional, and an employer. It helps students gain an understanding of what each of these individuals might consider in resolving a legal problem. The exercises' fact patterns involve both litigation and transactional contexts to help students understand the multi-faceted roles of employment discrimination attorneys. Perhaps most importantly, this book also tries to help students understand how the policy and theory underlying discrimination law affect the doctrine. The book contains numerous problems challenging students to question the underlying theory of American employment discrimination law and to consider how the law might work differently if it were based on a different set of theoretical assumptions. One of the highlights of the text is the Capstone Experience. The Capstone Experience gives students an opportunity to combine the theoretical, doctrinal, historical, and practical knowledge they have gained throughout the casebook and to use that knowledge to resolve real-world problems. The Capstone Experience provides five different exercises, each focusing on a different skill set. This book is part of the Context and Practice Series, edited by Michael Hunter Schwartz, Professor of Law and Dean of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock Bowen School of Law.

This book is intended as an introduction to the field of employment discrimination law, both at the abstract level of theory and at the concrete level of doctrine. It is as much an introduction for experienced lawyers and scholars who come to this field with a thorough knowledge of other aspects of the law as for law students who have just begun preparing for their careers. The new edition offers an up-to-date introduction to employment discrimination law: the major statutes, the current cases, the outstanding issues, and the competing policies in this field. The leading decisions of the Supreme Court receive a comprehensive analysis, in terms both of theory and doctrine, putting them in the context of the relevant statutory provisions and other judicial decisions. This book offers three different theoretical perspectives based on history, economics, and critical social theory to explain both the complexities and the tensions inherent in existing law.

This novel casebook offers an accessible introduction to modern employee benefits and executive compensation law, with primary emphasis on clarity and comprehensibility in presenting these technically challenging subjects. It is the first casebook to cover both employee benefits and executive compensation, two closely related fields that are frequently simultaneously practiced by American lawyers. The text is organized to permit an intuitively ordered progression through the basic tax and regulatory tenets that underlie both employee benefits and executive compensation law, with pauses to explain fundamental nonlegal concepts often unfamiliar to students -- including present value and actuarial analysis, design principles of retirement and insurance plans, and related economic ideas such as adverse selection and moral hazard. Substantial material is also devoted to the prominent public policy questions that currently surround the provision and regulation of employee retirement and health benefits in the United States, including significant discussion of the health reform legislation of 2010 as well as controversy over levels of executive compensation. The book is suitable for use either for a single overall survey class covering both employee benefits and executive compensation law, or for a class that focuses on either topic separately.

This casebook focuses on the large issues of doctrine, theory, and policy that disability rights law raises in employment, government services, public accommodations, health care, housing, and education. This book focuses less on identifying "the rules" of disability rights law and more on exploring the big questions through longer excerpts from a smaller number of cases. It includes textual notes examining key theoretical and policy questions. New edition includes updated discussion of the ADAAA and new EEOC and DOJ regulations, deinstitutionalization litigation, standing and pleading requirements in public accommodations litigation, the implications of the Affordable Care Act, and other topics.

The second edition of Mastering Employment Discrimination Law coincides with a defining moment in U.S. culture: the #metoo movement and the many sexual harassment scandals that have roiled American society. In addition to covering all procedural and substantive aspects of U.S. sexual harassment and sex discrimination law, the second edition also takes on a wide variety of employment discrimination law subjects. The book begins first with coverage and jurisdiction issues and then turns to complex federal and state procedural topics surrounding the filing of administrative charges of discrimination and civil lawsuits. Moreover, the book comprehensively addresses the substantive aspects of Title VII, the ADEA, the ADA (including recent amendments), the Equal Pay Act, and the Civil Rights Acts, as well as related issues such as remedies, attorney fees, and settlements. By adding Professor Joseph Seiner of the University of South Carolina School of Law¿a former attorney with the EEOC¿as a new co-author, the book has added substantial new focus on administrative topics and procedural issues in employment discrimination litigation.

According to Susan Deller Ross, many human rights advocates still do not see women's rights as human rights. Yet women in many countries suffer from laws, practices, customs, and cultural and religious norms that consign them to a deeply inferior status. Advocates might conceive of human rights as involving torture, extrajudicial killings, or cruel and degrading treatment—all clearly in violation of international human rights—and think those issues irrelevant to women. Yet is female genital mutilation, practiced on millions of young girls and even infants, not a gross violation of human rights? When a family decides to murder a daughter in the name of "honor," is that not an extrajudicial killing? When a husband rapes or savagely beats his wife, knowing the legal authorities will take no action on her behalf, is that not cruel and degrading treatment? Women's Human Rights is the first human rights casebook to focus specifically on women's human rights. Rich with interdisciplinary material, the book advances the study of the deprivation and violence women suffer due to discriminatory laws, religions, and customs that deny them their most fundamental freedoms. It also provides present and future lawyers the legal tools for change, demonstrating how human rights treaties can be used to obtain new laws and court decisions that protect women against discrimination with respect to employment, land ownership, inheritance, subordination in marriage, domestic violence, female genital mutilation, polygamy, child marriage, and the denial of reproductive rights. Ross examines international and regional human rights treaties in depth, including treaty language and the jurisprudence and general interpretive guidelines developed by human rights bodies. By studying how international human rights law has been and can be implemented at the domestic level through local courts and legislatures, readers will understand how to call upon these newly articulated human rights to help bring about legislation, court decisions, and executive action that protect women from human rights violations.

The second edition takes account of changes in the law since the first edition was published and in particular new interpretations of the National Labor Relations Act by the National Labor Relations Board and recent state restrictions on public sector collective bargaining.

This is the second edition of the acclaimed text on global antitrust law. With markets becoming increasingly global, mergers requiring approval in several different jurisdictions, cartels in one nation affecting supply in others, and countries increasingly entering into treaties with each other about the content or enforcement of competition laws, antitrust law is now a truly global phenomenon. Modern antitrust law is also different because it now reflects an increasingly economic approach to analysing antitrust and competition policy. This innovative work is the only truly comparative and economically sophisticated casebook on the market. Addressed to students from all jurisdictions having competition laws, this casebook provides an in-depth analysis of the two major global antitrust regimes in the world, as well as a summary of selected national antitrust laws. As such it will also serve as a useful reference for practitioners, competition officials and policy-makers interested in competition law. In the four years since the first edition, the increased globalization of antitrust law has continued apace. China, the world's third largest economy after the EU and US, has adopted an antitrust law and other nations have modified and modernized their antitrust regimes. The EU has adopted a new EU Treaty, new EU guidelines on abuse of dominance, new EU guidelines on non-horizontal mergers, and new EU regulations and guidelines on vertical agreements. In the US there have been important new Supreme Court cases (the 2009 Linkline and 2010 American Needle decisions) and the appearance of a new economic approach in the revised 2010 U.S. Merger Guidelines. This new edition expands and updates the pioneering approach of the first edition, addressing new developments not only in the US and EU, but also in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Israel, Japan, South Africa, and South Korea, with expanded coverage of China's new antitrust law, and the antitrust laws of Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Egypt, India, Indonesia, New Zealand, Peru, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, and Venezuela. Praise for the first edition '...worthy of considerable praise...contains a vast collection of well-chosen material taking in a wide span of both antitrust and merger law issues. It is well written and clear throughout, particularly on the economic concepts, and provides incisive commentary and questions which inspire further study.' Peter Whelan, Cambridge Law Journal 'Enlightened law professors and law schools will best serve their students not by teaching national competition law but by adopting Global Competition Law and Economics...an excellent book for introductory courses in comparative competition law at either a graduate or undergraduate level.' Okeoghene Odudu, Common Market Law Review '...the best four-and-a-half centimetres of shelf-space that I have seen devoted to competition law and policy issues for a very long time†?.' Yvonne van Roy, New Zealand Law Journal 'Free from the ideologically-driven perspective that can affect other antitrust casebooks, this is also the first casebook organized from inception with an eye directly on the global context...this book may be used in a classroom in Europe just as it will be used in the U.S. The result is a highly welcome contribution to the evolution of competition studies.' Judge Douglas Ginsburg '...this book is the only one on the market that is extremely well suited for use in a comparative antitrust law class...an extraordinarily teachable book that contains everything you might want to present...Finally, the comparative antitrust field has a standard textbook to use. And a wonderful standard it is.' Robert H Lande, University of Baltimore Law School

The organization begins with relatively uncomplicated general and universal principles, such as defining the classes protected by the law and the concept of "discrimination," and leave for later digestion the complex problems of proving violations. The materials are of teachable length. While leading cases have not been ignored, the materials include engaging cases that focus on issues of contemporary interest.
