ILRLR 5010 - Labor and Employment Law


     
Spring. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Enrollment limited to: graduate student standing.

A. Colvin, L. Compa, M. Gold, K. Griffith, R. Lieberwitz.

Survey and analysis of the law governing labor relations and employee rights in the workplace. The first half of the course is devoted to labor law and labor-management relations. It examines the legal framework for workers’ trade union organizing efforts, collective bargaining, and strikes and lockouts. The second half of the course turns to employment law outside the collective bargaining context.  It covers such topics as occupational health and safety, workers’ compensation, employment discrimination, “at-will” versus “just cause” rules for dismissing employees, non-competition and mandatory arbitration agreements, and other aspects of the individual employer-employee relationship. Also serves as an introduction to judicial and administrative systems.
