Employment Law

Employment law explores the legal rights and obligations of firms and workers in the U.S. contemporary labor market. We will discuss who the players are ┬┐ employees, employers, independent contractors, and contingent workers -- and the stakes involved in these classifications. We will study the reach of employment at will, as well as what happens when employees try to contract around it for job security, and when public law steps in to limit employers┬┐ termination rights. Workplace privacy and intellectual property rights will be covered as well, along with the major federal anti-discrimination laws.
