Bloomberg BNA Books Announces the Publication of “Workplace Harassment Law”
ARLINGTON, Va., Jan. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Bloomberg BNA today announces the publication of Workplace Harassment Law, an expansion and update of Sexual Harassment in Employment Law, now providing the most complete coverage of harassment issues in the workplace.
Workplace harassment has become one of the most litigious areas of employment law, with thousands of cases being brought against employers, resulting in millions of dollars in litigation costs and awards. Bloomberg BNA first addressed this growing area of law in its seminal treatise Sexual Harassment in Employment Law. Given the expansion of the theories of liability for harassment, however, and the evolution of employer and employee rights and obligations, litigators and employers need an updated reference that addresses the entire spectrum of workplace harassment issues.
The new Workplace Harassment Law provides the comprehensive coverage that attorneys need when bringing or defending a suit, offering guidance from seasoned practitioners. The treatise examines the nuts and bolts of workplace harassment law, from requirements for bringing a suit to establishment of harassment, actionable forms of harassment, and determination of employer liability.
The treatise also discusses harassment based on gender, race or color, national origin, religion, age, disability, association, and proximity. It starts with a history of workplace harassment, analyzing legislation that has come to define workplace harassment law, including opinions of the federal appellate courts interpreting Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and other anti-discrimination laws.
Looking at the requirements for bringing a case, Workplace Harassment Law explores timeliness and timely exhaustion of administrative remedies; the parties involved in a claim; and establishment of the causal connection, one of the most important requirements of a harassment claim. The treatise discusses the causal connection with respect to each of the protected classes and provides analysis of laws regarding retaliation and other adverse employment actions for opposing workplace harassment on the basis of these protected classes.
This newly expanded resource will provide expert analysis of the latest issues surrounding workplace harassment and sound advice on both avoiding and litigating harassment claims.
Workplace Harassment Law is authored by Barbara T. Lindemann, Of Counsel to Seyfarth Shaw, Los Angeles, CA, and co-author of Bloomberg BNA’s Age Discrimination in Employment Law and Employment Discrimination Law; and David D. Kadue, a partner in Seyfarth Shaw, Los Angeles, CA, co-author of BNA Books’ Age Discrimination in Employment Law, and author of Preventing Sexual Harassment and Other Workplace Harassment: A Fact Sheet for Employees. Numerous well-known practitioners provided contributions.
