Nondiscrimination in Employment, 1973-1975. A Broadening and Deepening National Effort.
Shaeffer, Ruth G.
This supplement to ED 086 806 discusses developments in the field of equal employment opportunity (EEO). A section on recent developments under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, covers the American Telephone and Telegraph Consent Decree, other conciliation and consent agreements, labor relations aspects, individual suits, testing and other employee selection procedures, seniority, sex discrimination and employee benefits, validity of performance appraisals, and processing of complaints by the EEO Commission. The next section briefly discusses recent developments under executive order 11246, as amended (compliance by specified types of government contractors). Other routes to federal court action are then covered. A section on recent developments under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 addresses work-force reduction problems and relationship of the job to the essence of the business. Recent developments under the Equal Pay Act of 1963 are then presented. A final section focuses on new laws and regulations: Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended; Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974; and Title IX (Educational Amendments 1972) regulations. Appendixes, amounting to approximately two-thirds of the document, include additional excerpts from federal court decisions about nondiscrimination and additional texts of various constitutional provisions and federal laws and regulations, as most recently amended.
