Employment Law

This is a course about legal regulation of the employment relationship. It surveys relevant common law doctrines and selected federal statutes affecting this relationship, but does not cover union formation or collective bargaining. Among the topics to be covered are the law of wrongful discharge; employee speech and privacy; employee duties; discrimination on the basis of race, sex, age, disability, and other protected traits; and the regulation of compensation.

Note: In the three-credit version of this course, topics involving workplace discrimination will be addressed only tangentially. Students wanting a fuller exploration of discrimination topics should take the separate Employment Discrimination course.
