The Liability Of Third Parties Under Title Vii, Andrew O. Schiff Oct 1984

The Liability Of Third Parties Under Title Vii, Andrew O. Schiff

University of Michigan Journal of Law Reform

This Note considers the extent to which Title VII covers discrimination by third parties other than employment agencies and labor organizations. Part I analyzes the rationale for covering third parties, discussing Title VIl's language and the policies that Congress intended it to serve.
