LAW 456 - Employment Law


This course addresses both the common law and contemporary statutes governing the employment relationship, with an emphasis on their practical application in today’s private -sector workplace. Topics to be addressed will include establishment of the employment relationship, wage and hour regulation, conditions of employment, discharge and termination, and noncompetition and other post employment obligations. The course will also include a brief review of unemployment compensation and workplace health and safety issues, address workplace privacy issues in the electronic/social medial age, as well as provide an introduction to employment discrimination law. This course will not address traditional labor law nor will it cover issues unique to public-sector employment. Neither will it significantly overlap the LAW 452 - Employment Discrimination  course.
