Note the purposes of the Chapter: The chapter generally describes the scope of the body of federal statutory laws and executive orders prohibiting discrimination in employment, and the administrative and judicial enforcement schemes identified with these laws. It is a reference chapter, for use as the student examines later chapters on the subject of the meaning and theories of discrimination, and the executive, legislative and judicial shaping and enforcement of the nondiscrimination principle.
The chapter is also, on its own, a presentation of certain introductory concepts, e.g., the meaning of “race” and “color”; the definition of “covered employers” and “protected” employees and applicants; Eleventh Amendment limitations on claims against states; administrative exhaustion requirements; remedies and attorneys fees.
These purposes remind the student of this subject that the role of the EEOC is to function as a federal administrative enforcement agency and that the role of the federal courts in Title VII cases, and ADEA, Title I ADA, and EPA cases is to interpret and apply these statutes.
