A Complete Resource: Civil Rights Investigations Published by Outskirts Press

Attorney Seena Kay Foster’s new handbook for investigations under the Workforce Investment Act and other Title VI related laws will prove a top of the line resource for both the novice and expert working in federally funded programs and activities.

Washington, DC, August 21, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Attorney and author Seena Kay Foster announced today the release of Civil Rights Investigations under the Workforce Investment Act and Other Title VI-Related Laws: From Intake to Final Determination, published by Outskirts Press. Foster’s comprehensive new guide is for anyone working with Civil Rights or Equal Opportunity laws and reveals each nut and bolt of how to process discrimination complaints in an easily understood format that contains every tip, insight, example and template anyone will ever need to easily conform to these sometimes complex laws.

Foster starts with the basics of determining if one has a complaint or not and, if so, if one has the authority to investigate it. From there she moves to more in-depth concepts of the process, including the burdens of the parties, the proper framing of issues of the investigation, the interviewing of witnesses, the correct analysis of conflicting evidence, and the writing of the final determinations.

Foster covers a wide array of discriminatory bases related to a number of Civil Rights laws and thoroughly explores race, color, national origin, gender, sexual harassment, religion, disability, political affiliation, citizenship and age. Civil Rights Investigations also contains sample interrogatories that cover such adverse actions as denial of access, denial of training, denial of services, denial of benefits and denial of proposals. Other sample interrogatories address sexual harassment, reasonable accommodation, reasonable modification, and retaliation as well as employment-related issues of termination, non-selection and non-promotion, adverse performance appraisals, and damages.

Civil Rights Investigations also provides a jurisdiction checklist as well as specific templates for every step of the investigation, from notifying the parties that one does not have jurisdiction to investigate a complaint to a final determination on the merits.

This handy and comprehensive reference work will make any civil rights discrimination investigation easier.

Civil Rights Investigations is available on-line in paperback through Amazon and Barnes and Noble and at www.outskirtspress.com/bookstore for a maximum trade discount in quantities of ten or more.
