Course Description

This program was recorded on May 14, 2021

This course surveys the history of radical change in the law governing employee-management relations in the past 100 years and explains the current differences between the law governing a wrongful termination claim by an employee in a non-unionized workforce versus the same type of claim in a workplace governed by a collective bargaining agreement.  A practitioner needs to know the history to understand the unique rules governing employees in a collective bargaining group and the cases dealing with issues such as federal labor law preemption.  These cases often seem contradictory or inconsistent but that can be explained by analyzing the underlying policy.  This area of law -- the interplay between federal labor law and state law -- is in constant flux as politicians continually attempt to tilt the playing field either in favor of employees or in favor of management, often proposing drastic overhaul of the legal landscape developed over decades.
