The course surveys the legal frameworks for conceptualizing discrimination and equality in the workplace. We will cover the major civil rights statutes regulating employment discrimination, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act. We also will examine social science research on how discrimination operates in practice, and litigation strategies in civil rights enforcement actions. This course is one of the three core work law courses and does not substantially overlap with the other two core courses, Work 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).
