Course Description
This class provides a survey of the law governing the employment relationship. On completion of this course, students will have acquired understanding of the basic sources of regulation of the employment relationship and the competing legal models for regulating the workplace. Students will also develop a deeper knowledge of the particular legal rules governing employee job security, mobility, privacy and voice, and the terms and conditions of employment. On completion of this course, students will also have developed skills in interpreting statutory and judicial texts and applying them to new factual contexts. The primary emphasis is the legal rights of the individual employee. The materials will also offer a brief conceptual introduction to labor law and will occasionally touch on employment discrimination, but are not intended to provide comprehensive coverage of those areas of the law. Students interested in anti-discrimination law are encouraged to take Employment Discrimination Law. Students interested in unionized workplaces are encouraged to take Labor Law
