Course Description:

This course surveys the legal rules applying to work and the workplace, with the exception of union/management relations. It covers protections against discharge, the right to be free of discrimination based on disability, race, gender, or age. There is an introduction to the regulation of pension and health plans. Issues of employee ownership of inventions and processes are explored. In short, if it involves work (but not unions), we are likely to cover it. The treatment of discrimination and of pension and health plans is introductory only and you may take this course whether or not you have already taken Employment Discrimination or ERISA or intend to take those courses. The course is conducted by the CaseFile Method. Each day, we will consider a different CaseFile (a fact pattern and legal precedents). The final examination will be a CaseFile for analysis. Doctrinal memorization is not a part of the course. Class attendance is required. Class participation is rewarded.

NOTE:
Laptops are not allowed during class sessions.

ATTENDANCE REQUIREMENT: Attendance at all class sessions is required. Enrolled students who do not attend the first class session will be dropped. Students seeking to enroll in this course must attend the first class session.
