Unlike other forms of litigation, employment discrimination cases are usually not document intensive. Depositions are the key method of obtaining information that can either make or break the case. This work is designed to be used by both the plaintiffs counsel and the defendant's counsel. Employment Discrimination Depositions explains the deposition process step by step, beginning with the decision of whether a person should be deposed to the final step of actually questioning the witness. This work focuses on particular aspects of a deposition that are important for an employment discrimination lawsuit or that should be approached differently when employment discrimination is alleged in the complaint.
Effective deposition strategies and techniques are provided, as well as form outlines and questions that can be incorporated into the facts of your specific case. This work addresses key issues that should be explored during any deposition in an employment discrimination case. In addition, specific categories of discrimination claims, such as sexual harassment and race discrimination, are analyzed in depth. Detailed questions are provided for both the plaintiffs and the defendant's counsel that can be tailored to the facts of a specific discrimination case. The focus will be on the federal statutes that are applicable to employment discrimination cases - Title VII of the federal Civil Rights Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Family and Medical Leave Act. The materials provided also can be applied to cases which arise under state statutes. In addition, the strategies and analysis described herein will be applicable toclaims filed with state or federal administrative agencies.
In sum, Employment Discrimination Depositions is a necessary and invaluable addition to any employment lawyers' office library.
