Recent Developments in Fifth Circuit Employment Law, Texas Tech Law Review Vol. 43 No. 3


This article provides a summary of the most notable of these decisions in six areas of employment law covered during the survey period.

These areas range from traditional mainstays like Title VII and the Fair Labor Standards Act to less common areas of development like the special rules applicable to government employers. The cases profiled here were selected based on their particular significance as either the beginnings of new Fifth Circuit doctrines or because they provide evidence of an emerging trend in the circuit.
