Employment Discrimination: Procedure, Principles, and Practice (Aspen Casebook) (Hardcover)

Employment Discrimination: Procedure, Principles, and Practice (Aspen Casebook) By Joseph A. Seiner Cover Image


This streamlined, straightforward casebook offers a fresh perspective on employment discrimination law, presenting a procedural-based approach (lacking in other texts) with interactive materials. While still providing traditional coverage, this text emphasizes the importance of procedural issues in workplace cases. It includes a unique "best practices" chapter which discusses the most effective ways to address workplace discrimination, from both a theoretical and legal perspective. Numerous exercises and problems foster classroom discussion. Practice tips situate students in the role of a practicing lawyer. Modern, cutting-edge cases demonstrate the importance of employment discrimination law. Chapter-in-review sections, summary charts, and graphs are used throughout to further student comprehension. Text boxes within cases, historical notes, and news events effectively help bring the material to life.
