This article discusses recent employment law developments at the United States Supreme Court. Employment law cases took center stage during the October 1997 and 1998 Terms of the Supreme Court and important employment law cases were pending, or have been decided, during the October 1999 Term. This article briefly surveys the Court's employment law cases during the October 1997 Term, focusing more extensively on the Court's employment law cases during the October 1998 Term, and then discusses two very important employment law cases before the Court during the October 1999 Term, involving the constitutionality of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 ("ADEA") 3 as applied to state government defendants, and proof of discrimination in ADEA cases and Title V11 4 disparate treatment cases.
