Written by Dewey authors Ernest Hadley and Natania Davis Federal Sector Harassment Law provides comprehensive coverage of harassment law based on sex, race and color, religion, disability, national origin, age and reprisal. The history of harassment law is rooted in sexual harassment law and cases. Each chapter begins with that history and then explains what the law is today and how/if it differs for the various bases.
Case law examples and analyses are provided throughout from the EEOC, its appellate organization, the Office of Federal Operations, and the courts; EEO enforcement guidance; EEO policy guidance; statutes and regulations. Agency representatives, EEO managers, HR professionals and supervisors will gain a better understanding of agency obligations under the law and how to structure and maintain an effective anti-harassment program. Complainants and their representatives will use Federal Sector Harassment Law to ensure compliance with the rights afforded under these laws and as an invaluable tool in litigating a harassment case.
