Description
On reaching the fiftieth anniversary of the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964, the author evaluates progress towards the full implementation of one of the law's key provisions: Title VII, which prohibits discrimination in the workplace. The author looks at key litigation as the law has come to include discrimination based on more than just race, including gender, age, ethnicity, and sexual orientation. From the segregationist policies of the past to lingering workplace oppression in the form of sexual harassment, age discrimination, and religious conflicts, workplaces have been the scenes of some of the greatest civil rights battles. This study of the landmark cases and rulings, and debates surrounding workplace discrimination of all kinds, sheds light on the cultural tensions grappled with in America. The author also looks at the broader history of oppression suffered, recognized, and overcome in the decades since the country passed its Civil Rights Act. In addition to a detailed history of the legal history of civil rights and America's workplace discrimination, this book also outlines ways forward for society as it continues to diversify and to redefine what it means to be respectful of fellow citizens' most inalienable, protected, and sacred rights.--adapted from publisher's description.
