Employment Discrimination: Recent Developments in the Supreme Court (Symposium: The Supreme Court and Local Government Law: The 1992-93 Term)

By Eileen Kaufman


At a symposium entitled, “The Supreme Court and Local Government Law; The 1992/93 Term”, Professor Eileen Kaufman spoke about the cases involving employment discrimination that were decided during that particular Term, Hazen Paper Company v. Biggins and St. Mary\u27s Honor Center v. Hicks. While Hazen is an age discrimination case and St. Mary\u27s is a Title VII case, they can be viewed as companion cases which serve to explain what an employment discrimination plaintiff must now establish when attempting to prove disparate treatment by indirect evidence. By way of preview, suffice it to say that plaintiff\u27s task has been made more difficult as a result of these decisions

Topics: Supreme Court, Hazen Paper Company v. Biggins, St. Mary\u27s Honor Center v. Hicks, Title VII, employment discrimination, disparate treatment, disparate impact, bona fide occupational qualification, BFOQ, direct evidence, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Carolina Freight Carriers Corp., grant v.
