Public and Private Enforcement of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964—A Ten-Year Perspective

Abstract

The purpose of this Article is to describe the enforcement provisions of the Act and to outline the litigative activities by government agencies and private parties in the three types of cases that have characterized court action under Title VII during the ten-year period since the Act's adoption. The record of enforcement compels the conclusion that effective enforcement of the Act has barely commenced. A much larger volume of litigation probably will be filed before the country approaches widespread compliance with the law against discrimination in employment.
