Fact discovery ( www.practicallaw.com/8-107-6127) in employment litigation can be complex, costly, and challenging. Given the fact-intensive nature of most employment disputes, the burdens of discovery often fall disproportionally on the employer. This Employment Litigation Discovery Toolkit offers a variety of resources that provide guidance on discovery under the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) in the employment context, including resources about the scope of discovery and discovery planning, e-discovery, damages discovery, and specific discovery devices such as:
Independent medical examinations under FRCP 35.
