Equal Employment Opportunity: Court Cases.
Abow, Stephen E.
Judicial decisions resulting from suits brought under provisions of the United States Constitution and the various civil rights statutes continue to have a significant impact on personnel administration. The 1972 amendments of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which brought State and local governments within the scope of Title VII, have made it important for State and local officials to become knowledgeable of evolving case law in the area of employment discrimination. The summaries in this book are designed to assist in doing this. They represent a cross section of civil rights court cases dealing with personnel administration. One hundred forty-two cases are abstracted. The cases were presented to the Supreme Court of the United States or to one of the eleven Federal circuit courts. Each summary presents the facts and issues surrounding each case as well as a discussion of the decision and its implications. (Author/MK)
