LAWS 9918 Employment Discrimination (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

Employment Discrimination Law will focus primarily on the landmark Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, forbidding workplace discrimination because of race, color, religion, gender, or national origin. Like most such legislation, the language leaves enormous discretion in the courts to interpret the prohibitions, define the terms like "discrimination,""because of," etc., and formulate methods of proof and a remedial structure. We will study cases, work through problems, and explore the policy implications of judicial monitoring of workplace decision-making.
