Product Description

This Work Law: Cases and Materials casebook is intended as the foundation for a survey course in Employment Law for those who wish to emphasize the significance of conceptualizing rights at work individually as opposed to collectively, to highlight the significance of workforce diversification along gender, racial, and ethnic lines, and to query whether workplace disputes should be privatized (resolved through individual contract or collective bargaining) or publicized (resolved by courts and legislatures).

Work Law presents the law of work in holistic fashion, illuminating the common themes running through Employment Law, Labor Law, and Employment Discrimination Law. The text is organized around five core themes of conflict in the workplace:

Job security versus flexibility (common law modifications on the at-will rule);
Dignity versus commodification (privacy issues in the workplace);
Voice versus control of production and property (employee speech rights, both individual and collective);
Freedom from discrimination versus flexibility (antidiscrimination law); and
Tension between preferences for private ordering through contract and the need for a social safety net (minimum standards legislation through wage and hour law, employee benefits, worker health and safety, and workers' compensation).
