Course Description:
This course examines the fundamental employee rights and employer obligations established by federal law and encompasses an examination of the National Labor Relations Act; the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act; the Equal Pay Act; the Occupational Safety and Health Administration; Worker's Compensation; the Family Medical Leave Act; the Pregnancy Discrimination Act; the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act; and Alternative Dispute Resolution. Together we will examine laws and regulations put in place establishing the legal framework of worker rights and protections. As we move through the subject matter, the ultimate goal will be to show the practical implications of the subjects studied on the modern workplace. In so doing, the topics will be introduced through an overview provided for by the textbook chapters accompanied by case studies which will provide real world examples of conflicts which can arise and how the courts/agencies have dealt with the conflicts. Our discussions will center upon recognition of how the conflicts arose, how the laws are applied, and how with hindsight the parties may have avoided the conflict or resolved it without litigation.
