Employment discrimination continues to be a growing field, comprising 20 to 25 percent of the federal civil docket. This course examines the major federal statutes prohibiting discrimination in the workplace, with special emphasis on practical problems encountered in litigation. We will examine the structure of and distinctions among various theories of discrimination, including disparate treatment and disparate impact discrimination. We will then focus on specific issues and discriminatory practices related to race, sex, national origin, religion, age and disability. Topics include statutory scope and coverage, establishing liability, defenses, remedies, and enforcement procedures. Students will participate in a mock deposition and settlement negotiations.
