Employment Law

This course is your entrée into the study of employment law. It is a survey course that explores a broad range of common law and statutory doctrines affecting the rights of employees and employers in the contemporary labor market. We will explore who the players are - employees, employers, independent contractors, and contingent workers -- and the "stakes" involved in these classifications. We will also study the employment-at-will doctrine; the tort and contract law incursions into this doctrine; and workplace privacy protections with constitutional, statutory, and common law bases. Our coverage will include major federal anti-discrimination and workplace accommodation statutes, including Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. Class Materials: Casebook: Willborn, Schwab, Burton and Lester, Employment Law Cases and Materials (4th ed., 2007).
