Changes in the area of employment discrimination law, since publication of earlier editions of this book, have refined many of the substantive doctrines and continued to clarify procedural issues. A number of relevant decisions have explored the scope of protection provided by the ADA, while others have focused on the extent to which Title VII proscribes sexually harassing behavior. The new Seventh Edition of Employment Discrimination Law: Cases and Materials includes updated note material to include analyses and recent studies of labor market discrimination as well as cover recent judicial developments and the following main decisions issued since the Sixth Edition was published in 2006: • Ricci v. DeStefano (Sup. Ct. 2009) concerning the right of an employer to postpone promotions based upon test results having a disparate impact and Lewis v. City of Chicago (Sup. Ct. 2010) dealing with the timeliness of challenges to the use of previously administered test scores which have a disparate impact on protected groups. • Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. (Sup. Ct. 2007) pertaining to the timeliness of challenges to gender-based pay differentials and the 2009 Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act reversing the impact of the prior Supreme Court decision. • In re Union Pacific RR Employment Practices Litigation (8th Cir. 2007) regarding the duty of employers to cover the cost of prescription contraceptives under the Pregnancy Discrimination Act amendments. • Crawford v. Metropolitan Government of Nashville (Sup. Ct. 2009) and Thompson v. North American Stainless (Sup. Ct. 2011) both dealing with the scope of the Title VII anti-retaliation proscription.
Employment discrimination law is like a huge jigsaw puzzle—albeit one with many missing and mismatched pieces, which are constantly being changed. The purpose of Understanding Employment Discrimination Law is to clarify the differences, uncertainty, and complexity of employment discrimination law. The Second Edition deals with all the watershed Supreme Court decisions since 2002 and otherwise expands and updates the coverage of the prior edition.
No one doubts the evils of invidious discrimination, or that prohibition of employment discrimination is a valid cause. Formal anti-discrimination laws applicable to employment exist in many countries. Yet discrimination seems to persist, and substantive equality remains elusive, in employment as in other walks of life. What are legislators doing to close this gap? That is the central question addressed by the eight national employment law experts whose papers originally presented at the Ninth Tokyo Seminar on Comparative Labour Law, held in February 2008 are presented here in revised versions. The eight countries represented are the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Australia, Korea, Taiwan and Japan. The topics and issues examined by each national contributor include the following: a brief historic overview and notable recent developments; statutes to prohibit discrimination on grounds of race/ethnicity, sex, religion/beliefs, age, disability, sexual orientation and employment status (such as part-time and fixed-term contract); special laws regarding wages, such as equal pay between men and women; constitutional basis for anti-discrimination statutes; typical cases of employment discrimination; justifiable grounds for distinction or disparity; so-called indirect discrimination; comparison of treatment of newer types of discrimination (e.g. age, disability, employment status) with treatment of traditional ones (e.g. race, sex); important issues of remedial procedure regarding employment discrimination cases; relationship between employment discrimination law and employment policy considerations; effect on employment practices of age discrimination and employment-status discrimination laws; measures to promote employment of elderly or disabled people; merits and demerits of addressing employment issues from the standpoint of and‘discriminationand’; and the most important issue of employment discrimination in each country today This book demonstrates that, while the growing importance of this area is commonly observed, there are differences in specific grounds covered by law and in the legal and societal contexts in which they came to be addressed. Nonetheless, it is definitely necessary and beneficial to learn from the systems and actual experiences of other countries, and these detailed descriptions and analyses provide invaluable information for this purpose for both practitioners and academics.
