Employment Law Yearbook 2018 covers the most important developments in employment law over the past year, including critical case decisions, legislative changes, government agency actions, and other events of interest to employers, employment and HR professionals, corporate attorneys, and employee advocates.


This 2018 edition substantially revises the 2017 edition and includes:

• the latest on the federal appeal involving California’s “suitable seating” requirements;

• the impact that the many and sometimes drastic changes made by the Trump administration are having on employment policies and practice;

• coverage of recent significant cases involving discrimination based on gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, national origin, age, and disability;

• up-to-date reporting of significant agency investigations and enforcement actions, from OFCCP, NLRB, and EEOC;

• significantly revised and updated coverage of arbitration agreements — an attractive tool for employers that has continued to come under scrutiny by the courts; and much more.


Spearheaded by a team of contributors from Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP, Employment Law Yearbook 2018 includes valuable contributions from experts at five other highly respected firms: Cozen O’Connor; Goldstein, Borgen, Dardarian & Ho; Littler Mendelson P.C.; Pope, Berger, Williams & Reynolds, LLP; and Schwabe, Williamson & Wyatt.
