It is an unlawful employment practice under Title VII to discriminate against an employee on the basis of national origin; however, the statute is silent as to whether English-only rules constitute such discrimination. With an ever more diverse work force, it is readily apparent that claims of this type will only increase. It is also clear that there is great uncertainty in this area of the law, and that both employers and employees need guidance. This research guide provides the user with research strategies and with citations to and summaries of (1) the leading primary sources, including federal and states statutes and regulations and the examination of different and inconsistent judicial approaches, and (2) secondary source materials such as law review articles and legal encyclopedias and treatises. --Publisher.
