This Article explores a more conservative viewpoint than Richard Epstein's view that all employment antidiscrimination laws should be repealed in his book Forbidden Grounds: The Case Against Employment Discrimination. This Article focuses on the distinctions between current antidiscrimination laws and those of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. While the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibited discrimination on the basis of race and sex, current laws prohibit discrimination on many other grounds. The author argues that these new laws constitute new policy choices, and they impose more costs than the traditional laws.
