Employment Civil Rights

Authors: Robert L. Nelson, Laura Beth Nielsen, Ronit Dinovitzer

The Employment Civil Rights Project is generating findings on the changing dynamics of employment discrimination litigation, the types of cases that succeed in litigation, and the parties' perceptions of anti-discrimination law. The first publication using the qualitative data from this project, Situated Justice: A Contextual Analysis of Fairness and Inequality in Employment Discrimination Litigation, was published in Law & Society Review (January 2012). Please click the "Civil Rights in Their Own Voices" link above to listen to some of the audio clips from the interviews to hear the data in respondents' "own voices" - literally.
