This chapter discusses the burden of knowing that workplaces have not yet been transformed to understand that all persons within are equally dignified and entitled workers, even despite the powerful insights, the scores of lawsuits and complaints, and the many regulations promulgated by governments and private entities. Commentators have raised concerns that judges and juries impose too exacting or the wrong standards for liability, and that they fail to recognize when plaintiffs have met their burdens. The massive investment of time and resources by individuals and institutions that both the lawsuits and the regulations represent has not yet shielded others from having to attempt anew to reduce inequality in workplaces. Other developments of the last two decades have also raised new challenges for those concerned about equality at work.

Keywords:   workplaces, entitled workers, standards for liability, plaintiffs, investment, inequality in workplaces
