LAW 456 - Employment Law


Spring Credits: 3 Christopher Abel

This course will address the basic 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 non-competition and other post-employment obligations. The course will also include a brief review of unemployment compensation and workplace health and safety issues, as well as 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.
