Beckham, Joseph C.
In this chapter the author notes that only one conclusion concerning the litigation covered is warranted: the extremely large number of cases dealing with employment issued continued unabated in 1980. The main areas of litigation are discrimination (primarily on the basis of race and sex); substantive constitutional rights; due process; immunity from suits; dismissal and discipline of employees for insubordination, neglect of duty, unprofessional conduct, immorality, and incompetence; and a range of issues focusing on tenure. Within each section, the author deals with federal questions first and then with state issues. (IRT)
