Bloomberg BNA Releases New Edition of Employment Discrimination Law

"Employment Discrimination Law, Fifth Edition" Provides Updates on the Laws Governing Discrimination in the Workplace

ARLINGTON, Va., Feb. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Bloomberg BNA has published the Fifth Edition of Employment Discrimination Law, offering a balanced presentation of the labor and employment issues surrounding discrimination in the workplace provided by legal specialists from the management, plaintiff, union, and public practice perspective.


The Fifth Edition offers substantial revisions and updates to discussions of:

  • Ledbetter v. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., Inc., where the Supreme Court's decision on the Title VII statute of limitations accrual date for pay discrimination claims sparked passage of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009, the first act of Congress signed into law by President Obama
  • The Supreme Court's rulings expanding the breadth of retaliation claims
  • The Supreme Court's decision in Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. v. Dukes, addressing Title VII class actions
  • The impact of the Supreme Court's multiple decisions on the viability of agreements to arbitrate employment disputes

In addition, footnotes in most chapters now focus on decisions by the Supreme Court and the U.S. Courts of Appeals, avoiding cumulative and space-consuming citations. The exception is that district court decisions have been retained in instances where they constitute an important part of the developing case law (such as under newer statutes), and in fields such as procedure and evidence where there is little appellate authority.

The treatise is published in cooperation with the Equal Employment Opportunity Committee of the ABA Section of Labor and Employment Law. Section publications provide a forum for the views and professional development of practitioners in labor and employment law. For more information on Section participation, please call the Section at 312.988.5813 or visit

Lindemann, formerly Of Counsel at Seyfarth Shaw and co-author of Bloomberg BNA's Age Discrimination in Employment Law and Workplace Harassment Law; Paul Grossman, partner in Paul Hastings LLP, Los Angeles, Ca.; C.
