Job Opening

I came across the following job posting today:

UNITED STATES SENATE EMPLOYMENT LITIGATION ATTORNEY The Office of the Senate Chief Counsel for Employment (SCCE) is seeking two Employment Law litigators to defend the offices of United States Senators and officers in Title VII, ADEA, ADA and other employment cases. The SCCE is an in-house defense team of lawyers. Unique opportunity to combine employment law and constitutional law and to develop the jurisprudence with respect to the Congressional Accountability Act. Responsibilities also include advising Senate offices of their employment law obligations. Must have experience defending employers against employment discrimination claims, knowledge of Title VII, ADEA, ADA and FMLA. Excellent research and writing skills required. Strong academic credentials required; main law review membership preferred. Fax resume and law school transcript to: 202/228-3603. No telephone inquiries. Equal opportunity employer. Position open until filled.

Can you imagine how hard it would be to defend some of these Senators when they've been accused of, say, sexual harassment?

Random, that's not a real ad, is it??? Is our govt really that shameless?

This is depressing...

It took them damn long enough to make them accountable at all. Since most of those laws were enacted they were not applicable to our elected federal office holders (I think thats true). They had to be shamed into enacting the legislation you cited to be held to the same standards as the rest of us.
Nice. Ivan

No, Mick, that's a real job posting. I found it on a website that specializes in in house counsel positions.

Ivan, I agree with you, as usual.
