This new edition of An Introduction to the Law of Employment Discrimination summarizes the federal laws that prohibit employment discrimination on the basis of race, sex, religion, national origin, age, and disability. Several major statutes, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the Equal Pay Act, protect American workers from discrimination.

In this handy reference guide, Michael Evan Gold discusses complex legislation in lucid, understandable terms. In his discussion of each statute, the author provides such information as: who is protected by the statute; who must obey the statute; principal definitions of discrimination together with numerous examples; ways of proving discrimination; reasonable accommodation; defenses to discrimination; retaliation; remedies; and procedures for bringing a claim.
