Judicial review of college and university decisions regarding faculty and other employees continues to encompass a broad range of actions, including selection and appointment; evaluation of performance; substantive and procedural aspects of nonretention or dismissal; alleged employment discrimination based upon sex, race, age, or national origin; personal injury; and entitlement of benefits in the form of retirement pay or unemployment or workmen's compensation. In many instances, the courts continue to draw distinctions between public and private colleges and universities. A general understanding by administrators of the cases presented in this chapter can be useful in the identification of potential legal problems or issues arising from contemplated personnel actions and in discussions with legal counsel concerning such actions.
