We are very pleased that we have been asked to contribute an updated chapter on legal principles for this volume. 1 As we noted in the original chapter, many principles of employee selection have been illuminated through decades of equal employment opportunity legislation, regulation, and related case law.

Once again, we see a clear role for employment litigation knowledge related to personnel selection in this volume.
