Overview

When your course in employment or labor law is the only one students are likely to take, shouldnt it provide a balanced survey of key concepts and issues? This new casebook is deliberately designed to highlight the breadth of the field, with a focus on the context of potential employment disputes, including formation of the employment relationship and questions of status, employee selection, compensation, supervision, discharge, and post-employment disputes.

EMPLOYMENT LAW presents up-to-date material on emerging areas:

  • rights of undocumented workers
  • abusive supervision
  • work-family conflicts, including the FMLA
  • work-civic duty conflicts, including USERRA
  • disputes over post-employment competition
  • arbitration

    Be sure to notice that this new casebook:

  • completes the coverage of basic employment law for students who have already studied collective bargaining and employment discrimination
  • explores the context of potential employment disputes to help students grasp the wide range of issues that arise in the employment relationship
  • reviews important material on individual employee rights against wrongful discharge, background investigations (such as criminal background checks and drug tests), and disputes over compensation (both contractual and statutory), that is ordinarily excluded from collective bargaining and employment discrimination courses
  • supplements traditional collective bargaining and employment discrimination courses with a fuller treatment of important related topics
  • offers a notably interesting and thought-provoking selection of cases
