This area of law has evolved and become increasingly complex. Treating all of the relevant topics in a single volume became impractical. In order to provide a thorough treatment of the issues, the area of employment discrimination deserved a book of its own. Accordingly, Chapter 3 of Pennsylvania Labor & Employment Law in the first edition is now a separate title: Pennsylvania Labor & Employment Law: Employment Discrimination, published in December 2015.
