Duquesne Law Review


This article, which is written for the general practitioner, examines the 1963 amendment to the Civil Service Act, which amendment prohibits discrimination. The amendment is analyzed in detail and the advantages and disadvantages of construing it broadly are considered. Traditional forms of discrimination are reviewed, but in addition, certain non-traditional forms of discrimination which have evolved in civil service law because of employees' restricted appeal rights are also discussed. The article also examines constitutional questions which have arisen under the amendment, and other forums in which aggrieved individuals may litigate their claims.
