Course Description:

This course examines the regulation of employment discrimination through Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and related laws. It offers a comprehensive introduction to conceptualizing and relating difference, discrimination, and equality in the workplace. Race and sex are the primary focus, but with attention to and comparison with disability, national origin, religion, and sexual orientation. The course provides both the practical knowledge necessary to identify and analyze employment discrimination problems in a practice setting and a theoretical foundation relevant to other areas of civil rights and antidiscrimination law. Also considered are comparisons between antidiscrimination and other approaches to workplace fairness. Evaluation by examination.
