CL813: Employment Discrimination
This course will focus on the federal statutory responses to the issues surrounding employment discrimination on the basis of age, disability, race, color, religion, sex, national origin, and alienage. In this context, you will examine the manner in which Congress and the federal courts have balanced preserving the rights to control private property with the nation’s commitment to equal opportunity in employment. To that end, you will carefully examine the provisions of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits discrimination based on race, color, religion, national origin, and sex, the 19th century federal Reconstruction Civil Rights Acts, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act. This course will also address more expansive anti-discrimination protections under California state law. You will gain essential information about the procedures for resolving employment discrimination disputes and the remedies that may be available upon that resolution.
