From the publisher:

In one comprehensive resource, this groundbreaking book assembles the facts, insights, lessons learned, and trends that are most relevant in the field of employment discrimination litigation. Written by a distinguished panel of lawyers, scientists, judges, scholars, and human resource managers, Employment Discrimination Litigation draws together the most current information from various disciplines -- law, psychology, statistics, economics, sociology, and human resources -- to help professional psychologists navigate their way through the tangle of employment law.

This practical resource includes perspectives from the point of view of both plaintiff and defendant for cases involving questions of race, gender, disability, and age. In addition, it offers an overview of the process by which complaints are filed, and the authority represented by various case law. Employment Discrimination Litigation will illuminate myriad issues such as Daubert motions, class certification issues, the setting of cut scores that will withstand challenge, common statistical analyses of adverse impact, and merit-based issues. Employment Discrimination Litigation also:

  • Presents a temporal description of a typical employment discrimination case from start to finish
  • Outlines the major guidelines that are often invoked in employment litigation -- the A.P.A. Standards, Uniform Guidelines, and SIOP Principles
  • Reviews litigation related to the Fair Labor Standards Act
  • References written judicial opinions that relate the activities and devices most often employed by industrial and organizational psychologists

The book also summarizes and integrates the key points of employment discrimination litigation to present a vision for the future.
