Abstract:

"In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court decided McDonnell Douglas Corp. v. Green. The impact that the case's three-part burden shifting framework has had on employment discrimination law in the years since cannot be overstated...Based on the author's review of thousands of opinions interpreting and applying the McDonnell Douglas test, this comprehensive work thoroughly describes settled areas of law under McDonnell Douglas, but it also explores the many areas in which the law is still confusing or unsettled. In these instances, it provides the reader with an overview of why the confusion exists - and paths for resolving it. Highlights include: a complete discussion of every Supreme Court case interpreting McDonnell Douglas; detailed explanations of how each step of the multi-part framework operates; a comprehensive review of the evidence that litigants may use to support their claims or defenses; analysis of how the McDonnell Douglas framework intersects with pregnancy accommodation, retaliation, cat s paw cases, but for cause, and stereotyping; a thorough discussion of how counsel can argue for favorable changes in the McDonnell Douglas framework to benefit their clients; coverage of major state law innovations related to the test; and a summary of the major criticisms of the test, including suggestions for improvement."--
