This article provides, an overview of the recent congressional enactments and amendments, including the Americans With Disabilities Act, and the Civil Rights Act of 1991 which modified Title VII, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, and 42 U.S.C. § 1981. Additionally, recent Supreme Court decisions, which have also altered some longstanding doctrines in this area, are addressed. Finally, some decisions of the courts within the Seventh Circuit are presented to provide a more detailed insight into the state of the law within this federal circuit.
