This course examines the law regulating employment discrimination and equal employment opportunity, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act. The course emphasizes the major analytical frameworks for conceptualizing discrimination and equality in the workplace, as well as related social science perspectives on employment discrimination. This course covers employment discrimination law in the depth and considers litigation strategies for employment discrimination actions. This course does not overlap in coverage with Employment Law (which covers common law and statutory regulation of wages and working conditions) and Labor Law (which covers the law of unions and collective representation). It covers more material about the major employment discrimination statutes, focusing primarily on Title VII.

Real-time attendance at the first class is mandatory for all currently enrolled and waitlisted students; any currently enrolled or waitlisted students who are not present on the first day of class (without prior permission of the instructor) will be dropped. The instructor will continue to take attendance throughout the add/drop period and anyone who moves off the waitlist into the class must continue to attend or have prior permission of the instructor in order not to be dropped.
