Professor Tristin Green’s scholarship focuses on employment discrimination and inequality. She draws on the social sciences in her work to better understand discrimination as it operates in the modern workplace. Her work emphasizes discrimination as a relational problem and also highlights the role that organizational context plays in producing discrimination. Green is the author of numerous articles including "Race and Sex in Organizing Work: 'Diversity,' Discrimination, and Integration" (Emory Law Journal, 2010), "Insular Individualism: Employment Discrimination Law after Ledbetter v. Goodyear" (Harvard Civil Rights - Civil Liberties Law Review, 2008), "Discrimination-Reducing Measures at the Relational Level" (Hastings Law Journal, 2008), with Alexandra Kalev, “Discomfort at Work: Assimilation Demands and the Contact Hypothesis” (North Carolina Law Review, 2008), “A Structural Approach as Antidiscrimination Mandate: Locating Employer Wrong” (Vanderbilt Law Review, 2007), and “Work Culture and Discrimination” (California Law Review, 2005). She is also co-author with Herma Hill Kay of Sex-Based Discrimination: Text, Cases, and Materials (2011).
Green co-organized a Working Group on the Future of Systemic Disparate Treatment Law, which met in March 2011 at USF for an engaged discussion of systemic disparate treatment law. Publications from the working group consist of a principal article by Green titled "The Future of Systemic Disparate Treatment Law" and shorter articles and commentaries by other members of the group. The articles are published in the Berkeley Journal of Employment and Labor Law.
