Most Americans assume that that employees alleging workplace discrimination face the same legal system as other litigants. However, employment discrimination cases have fared increasingly poorly in the courts and have come to operate in a fundamentally different legal system than other claims. In Unequal, Sandra F. Sperino and Suja A. Thomas provide an authoritative account of how our legal system evolved into an institution that is inherently biased
against workers making rights claims.

  • Federal Law of Employment Discrimination in a Nutshell

    Mack A Player, Sandra F Sperino

    This text is designed to assist students-both law and undergraduate-to achieve a basic understanding of this complex area of the law, and provide an up to date review for the practitioner. The focus is upon Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 196...

David Lopez, Former General Counsel of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Partner, Outten and Golden This is must-read for all who care about workplace fairness and realizing the promise of our nation's civil rights laws.

Seth Harris, Former Acting and Deputy Secretary of Labor, Visiting Lecturer, Cornell Institute for Public Affairs In this important book, Professors Sperino and Thomas painstakingly and poignantly disclose how courts have broken the promise of America's workplace civil rights laws.

Sam Bagenstos, Frank G. Millard Professor of Law, University of Michigan Law School Our civil rights laws make grand promises of equality and opportunity, but those promises are betrayed every day in courthouses throughout the Nation. By telling the stories of the real people who have been denied the rights Congress guaranteed them, Sperino and Thomas clearly illustrate the gap between promise and reality. This book is essential reading for scholars, lawyers, and any citizen who cares about our fundamental national commitment to equal rights.

Nancy Gertner, Former federal judge, Senior Lecturer on Law, Harvard University Professors Sperino's and Thomas's book goes well beyond the academic articles that recite the virtual repeal of the civil rights laws (mine among them). They give content to the discussion-meaningful, detailed content-about the specific cases, their fact patterns, and the dismissive manner in which the courts too often deal with them. It is an eye opening account of how doctrine-procedural and substantive-has gone far afield from the language of the civil rights laws
and the goals it was intended to accomplish. It is an important work, required reading for practitioners, scholars and judges.

Charlotte Fishman, attorney, San Francisco Daily Journal In short, Unequal: How America's Courts Undermine Discrimination Law is a splendid book. It is a sobering 'must read' for lawyers, judges, policy makers and scholars involved in employment law issues. It is also a highly engaging discussion of those issues, suitable for any reader who cares about justice in the American workplace.

Katie Eyer, American Constitution Society Blog In one slim volume, Sperino and Thomas have laid out concisely virtually all of the doctrines that play a key role in defeating claims of intentional discrimination brought by employees today. They have provided a wealth of detail of how those doctrines, in real world cases, allow employers to prevail, even in the face of explicit evidence of discrimination. In short, Unequal's eye-opening and informative account is a valuable read for most anyone with a
stake in the current state of anti-discrimination lawjudges, policy makers, lawyers, teachers and scholars of discrimination law, employers and most of all employees.

U.S. District Judge John McConnell, Law360 The law professors use scores of real life examples to make their case, showing how far astray courts h...
