LAW Employment Law

Prof. Marc D. Greenbaum,

3 credits day; 3 credits evening.

Not offered 2015-2016.

Employment law consists of three closely related legal frameworks: the common law of employment, collective bargaining, and direct statutory regulation of particular aspects of the employer-employee relationship. This course provides an overview of this tripartite structure and the fundamental issues with which it is concerned, such as the balancing of individual rights and managerial rights, productivity and job security; protection against unequal or unfair treatment; and the imposition of minimum standards regarding compensation and working conditions.

Faculty comments: Professor Greenbaum: This course examines the various means by which the law governs and regulates the individual employment relationship. Most notably, it focuses upon developing employee rights under contract and tort law, as well as under various employment regulation statutes, such as the Fair Labor Standards Act and the various statutes prohibiting class based employment discrimination. Classroom discussion is the primary teaching methodology. The course grade is based upon a final examination.
