Course Description

This course will examine federal statutory law as it applies to employment discrimination, with an emphasis on discrimination based on race, sex, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion and age.  The most prominent statutes in this area are Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, and an older civil rights statute from the Reconstruction era, 42 U.S.C. §1981. The course will explore the substantive meanings of “discrimination” under these acts, the models of proof for establishing a claim, the theoretical underpinnings of the statutes, and some of the procedural and remedial issues relevant to employment discrimination law.
