For plaintiff and defense counsel, Civil Rights in the Workplace provides complete analysis of punitive damages, compensatory damages, jury trials, and changes in providing disparate treatment and disparate impact cases. It shows you how the 1991 Act has changed the way lawyers and their clients approach employment discrimination under Title VII, the Age Discrimination and Employment Act, the Reconstruction Era Civil Rights Act, and the ADA. You get the full text -- with insightful analysis -- of the controversial Supreme Court rulings that led to the creation of the 1991 Act.
