New Journal Of Employment Discrimination Law from CCH Confronts Real-life Issues, Provides Practical Strategies
(RIVERWOODS, November 17, 1999) – With employment discrimination now the largest single source of litigation in the U.S. today, employers can’t afford to be complacent about this increasingly complex and constantly changing area, according to CCH INCORPORATED (CCH), a leading provider of human resources law information. Human resources personnel and lawyers simply don’t have enough time, however, to keep up with ongoing changes in federal and state laws and regulations, not to mention the tens of thousands of cases filed and hundreds of appellate decisions handed down each year. Now, to help employers meet the challenges of staying on top of this complicated area, CCH is introducing the Journal of Employment Discrimination Law.
The only periodical devoted to the full range of employment discrimination issues exclusively, the CCH Journal of Employment Discrimination Law delivers analysis of important legislation and court decisions, dynamic practice techniques, preventive strategies and more. Written by a distinguished group of practicing attorneys, employee relations professionals, corporate managers and consultants, the Journal provides valuable insights and analysis from the front lines.
"The area of employment discrimination is a minefield for employers," said CCH HR product manager Jeff Kessler, "and the potential for costly missteps is high. The new CCH Journal of Employment Discrimination Law brings together in one place all of the information and strategies needed for effective risk management."
Each quarterly issue offers concise coverage of the latest developments and hottest topics, including affirmative action; age, race, gender and national origin discrimination; sexual harassment; violence in the workplace; essential job functions and reasonable accommodation; and employment practices and the ADA.
Authority, Experience Cut Through the Compliance Maze
Recent federal and state laws have widened the scope of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, and new policies and compliance procedures continue to be issued. To complicate matters further, each agency governing employment discrimination – including the Justice Department, the EEOC and the OFCCP – issues its own compliance regulations which may or may not be in accordance with others. In addition, many of the finer points of discrimination law are being written in court decisions, making this area even more difficult to follow.
The CCH Journal of Employment Discrimination Law helps navigate the maze of laws, regulations and judicial decisions. It provides advice directly from employment discrimination specialists on how to apply new policies and compliance procedures, as well as expert analysis of the effects of the latest employment discrimination legal rulings.
The timesaving tool delivers concise discussions of critical legal and regulatory developments, including:
- Summaries of important case law
- Surveys of laws and variations on court rulings
- Case and statutory citations for further reference
- Circuit-by-circuit overviews of positions on employment discrimination
- Trends in recent court decisions
- Seasoned practitioners’ perspectives on important decisions
Practical Guidance From the Professionals
Each quarterly issue of the Journal is packed with professional insights, innovative strategies and best practices that can be put into practice immediately to:
- Reduce employee dissatisfaction and the potential for litigation
- Keep company practices up to date with the latest compliance requirements
- Preemptively respond to emerging employment discrimination law issues
- Minimize exposure in the global marketplace
- Ensure effective litigation tactics
