940 Employment Law - §001, Summer 2011 Second 5-Week Session

Categories: International and Comparative Law Legal Theory and Jurisprudence

Instructor(s) Secunda, Paul

Employment Law is basically a survey of the common law of wrongful discharge, public employee rights, privacy issues, covenants not to compete, wage and hour laws, leave laws, unemployment compensation, and occupational safety and health. It is distinguishable from Labor Law in that Labor Law's orientation is only union-management relations, with focus on organizing, collective bargaining, and protected activities (picketing, strikes, boycotts, etc.). However, note that Employment Law topics have sometimes been taught at the Law School under the course title "Protective Labor."
