Employer/ employee relations are a substantial part of all or lives. Historically employment discrimination has been a major issue for employers and employees alike. Similar to the past, today’s society also faces the problem of employment discrimination. There are many federal and state laws aimed at preventing employment discrimination.

This project will examine current federal and state employment laws and assess how they are interpreted in current case law (specifically relating to race, gender and age discrimination in employment). It will also analyze this case to determine if there are any trends or patterns by the courts deciding these employment discrimination cases.
