Changes in the area of employment discrimination law, since publication of earlier editions of this book, have refined many of the substantive doctrines and continued to clarify procedural issues. A number of relevant decisions have explored the scope of protection provided by the ADA, while others have focused on the extent to which Title VII proscribes sexually harassing behavior. The new Seventh Edition of Employment Discrimination Law: Cases and Materials includes updated note material to include analyses and recent studies of labor market discrimination as well as cover recent judicial developments and the following main decisions issued since the Sixth Edition was published in 2006:

•   Ricci v. DeStefano (Sup. Ct. 2009) concerning the right of an employer to postpone promotions based upon test results having a disparate impact and Lewis v. City of Chicago (Sup. Ct. 2010) dealing with the timeliness of challenges to the use of previously administered test scores which have a disparate impact on protected groups.
•   Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. (Sup. Ct. 2007) pertaining to the timeliness of challenges to gender-based pay differentials and the 2009 Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act reversing the impact of the prior Supreme Court decision.
•   In re Union Pacific RR Employment Practices Litigation (8th Cir. 2007) regarding the duty of employers to cover the cost of prescription contraceptives under the Pregnancy Discrimination Act amendments.
•   Crawford v. Metropolitan Government of Nashville (Sup. Ct. 2009) and Thompson v. North American Stainless (Sup. Ct. 2011) both dealing with the scope of the Title VII anti-retaliation proscription.
