Synopsis By: Goldstein - Proceeding Author: J. Leon Adair, Robert W. Ashmore, William P. Murphy

The author discusses the statutes enacted between 1963 and 1978 prohibiting discrimination because of race, color, sex, religion, national origin, and age, and the practical limits of arbitration under collective bargaining agreements to the resolution of discrimination claims. Nonetheless, the author forecasts that arbitration will play a valuable role in the resolution of discharge cases in which discrimination is alleged, especially as the parties and employees come to appreciate the delays and other deficiencies of administrative and judicial forums.
