Associate Dean Sperino Publishes New Edition of Federal Employment Discrimination Law Book

Associate Dean Sandra Sperino has published the 10th edition of her book, “Federal Law of Employment Discrimination in a Nutshell” this February.

Dean Sperino’s book is designed to assist students—both law and undergraduate—to achieve a basic understanding of the complex area of federal employment discrimination law, and provide an up-to-date review for the practitioner. The focus is upon Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (race, national origin, sex, and religious discrimination), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act as applied to the workplace.

The book addresses the method of proving violations, both disparate treatment and disparate impact analysis, including a brief primer of statistical proof, as well as the defenses to the express use of proscribed classifications. Finally, the book provides a quick reference to the complex procedural and remedial provisions of the statutes.
