Employment litigation handbook

Now in its second edition, this title is intended to assist the practitioner representing either the plaintiff or the defendant with any employment case including harassment, discrimination, or wrongful discharge. Each chapter assists in a different stage of the lawsuit beginning with “commencing the lawsuit” which discusses case evaluation, drafting the complaint, venue and forum, and relief. Subsequent chapters cover responding, discovery, experts, summary judgment, pretrial motions, special evidentiary concerns, trial preparation, juries, the trial, post-trial motions, appeals, and finally professionalism and ethics. Each chapter has appendixes that contain checklists, sample pleadings, questionnaires, timetables, sample letters and more. This title also has a companion CD which contains electronic versions of the documents found in the appendixes.
