About the Book

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 compliance, investigation, and counseling perspectives characteristic of modern practice.  The broad coverage integrates scholarship with legal doctrine drawn from statutes and judicial decisions. The new edition has been significantly reworked to reduce the page count by approximately 100 pages and to further streamline the casebook. The useful Statutory Supplement is available for separate purchase.
