Course Description

Employment Law Survey | L4205

This course will provide a broad overview of the field of employment law. It begins with an exploration of the employer/employee relationship and the “at will” rule. It then addresses various constitutional, statutory, and common law doctrines that tend to be applied to the employer/employee relationship, often as exceptions to the “at will” rule. Contract, tort, and anti-discrimination doctrines will be covered, as well as constitutional doctrines addressing free speech and privacy in the workplace, and regulatory regimes addressing wages and hours. Finally, this course will explore the post-employment relationship, including trade-secrets and non-competition agreements. These topics will be addressed at both a theoretical and a practical level.
