ILRLR 6840

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2018-2019.

This course explores the role of law in prohibiting employment discrimination based on characteristics that include race, sex, gender, national origin, religion, age, and disability. This study will analyze the development of employment discrimination law toward greater inclusion, for example, expanding protection to include a socially-defined concept of "gender" rather than a biologically defined concept of "sex". The course will also analyze the gaps that remain in providing broad and effective protection against discrimination in the workplace and the difficulties individuals and groups face in bringing legal claims.
