Discrimination in Employment.
Intended as a guide on discrimination problems and issues for students and practitioners in the area of employment relations, this book interrelates historical, religious, economic, medical, and sociological factors surrounding racial, religious, national, sex, age, and physical and mental discrimination to explain discrimination in employment. The chapters in the first half of the book on racial and religious discrimination develop the background related to the roots of discrimination; discuss the relationship between traditional economic theory and discrimination issues; analyze Court interpretations of the Constitution; and examine the development and application of Federal policy related to discrimination through a discussion of Federal labor laws and executive orders, and State and Federal fair employment legislation. The remainder of the book focuses on sex, age, health, and other specific types of discrimination such as experienced by homosexuals and ex-convicts, each in turn being discussed in terms of history and applicable legislation. Supreme Court decisions in six cases, a bibliography, and publications of the Center for Labor and Management are appended. (EM)
