The purpose of this chapter is to acquaint the evaluating psychologist with analytical or conceptual models developed by past evaluators to help them prepare for and organize the task of conducting a workplace discrimination evaluation. The chapter introduces key legal concepts that the evaluating psychologist will encounter, such as a mental state in controversy, “garden variety” damages, compelled mental examinations, proximate cause, eggshell skulls, the duty to mitigate, and malingering. These concepts form the backdrop for our five-stage model to assess the nature and scope of injuries and causes of those injuries.
