About the Book

The most important color in the workplace is not black or white, but green. A company’s employment decisions should be based on the bottom line, not on an employee’s skin color, gender, age, ethnicity, or other discriminatory category. Businesses shouldn’t care if an employee is black, white, brown, red, or some other color; they should care how well they perform their job.

In Workplace Discrimination Prevention Manual, author and attorney David A. Robinson teaches employers how to prevent some of the more common types of illegal discrimination in the workplace and how to prevent or reduce the impact or likelihood of a discrimination lawsuit. He helps employers learn how to run a productive, efficient, profitable business without violating the discrimination laws. Robinson answers some of the most perplexing questions in human resource management today:

- Should employers think about the race and skin color of their employees, or should employers be race-blind and color-blind?

- Should supervisors be more lenient with aging and disabled employees than with other employees, or should they treat everyone the same?

- Should employers treat men and women differently, or the same?

Filled with innovative, practical tips, Workplace Discrimination Prevention Manual provides an easy-to-understand overview of employment discrimination law and discusses the specifics of race, ethnicity, age, religion, disability, and sexual orientation discrimination. This guidebook presents a valuable resource for executives, managers, lawyers, business students, and law students.
