Also, Labor and Employment Law Handbook has been updated to include coverage of:
- The Ninth Circuit Court's decision in Witt v. Department of the Air Force to reinstate a former Air Force Major's lawsuit that challenged her discharge based on her sexual orientation, the court holding the lower court erred in applying a national basis of review of her case, rather than a heightened level of scrutiny, in that the federal government may only intrude upon the personal and private lives of homosexuals to advance an important government interest.
- The Fifth Circuit Court's holding in Taylor v. UPS that the statute of limitations under Title VII is tolled during pending class action proceedings regarding such claims under the Act.
- The Seventh Circuit Court's finding in Amrheim v. Health Care Service Corp. that the proximity of time between an employee's threat to file a discrimination charge and her later discharge was too remote and speculative to support her retaliatory claim.
- The Third Circuit Court's decision in McGovern v. Philadelphia that Section 1981 does not provide an employee a right of action against a public employer.
- The Eighth Circuit Court's ruling to uphold a liquidated damages award to employees who worked overtime when combining work hours at two restaurants with common ownership.
