Chapter Summary


This chapter, Remedies: Injunctions, focuses on Title VII injunctive relief. Remedies for violations of Title VII include broad equitable relief, as well as compensatory and punitive damages in some types of cases. Courts have wide discretion under Title VII to fashion injunctive relief. This may include a preliminary injunction if the plaintiff is able to show a probability of success on the merits coupled with irreparable harm. A permanent injunction may be issued once a determination has been made that Title VII was violated.

The chapter begins with a summary of Title VII remedies, and discusses the basis for the availability of injunctive relief. The chapter also discusses preliminary matters including identifying the prerequisites to a preliminary injunction, and explains the scope of a preliminary injunction. The chapter then sets forth the prerequisites to a permanent injunction, discusses the scope and uses of a permanent injunction, modification of a permanent injunction, as well as enforcement of a permanent injunction.

Labor and Employment Law is a complete guide to labor and employment law, both federal and state. Expert authors provide concise, authoritative analysis on all established and emerging issues in labor and employment law. This comprehensive treatise also offers practice tips, checklists, and model forms for use in ERISA, FMLA, and OSHA disputes.
