This course surveys the key federal and California laws that govern the workplace. The instructor will use a combination of lectures, guest speakers, and interactive hypotheticals to explore cutting-edge issues in employment law. Topics include who is an employee, emerging employment models in the gig economy, employment discrimination, disability law, employment status, privacy in the workplace, the future of class actions, the intersection between immigration status and employment, and wage and hour law. Students who take this class will have the ability to apply the law to issues that arise in the real world workplace.

NOTE for 1Ls: This course will discuss contract and tort principles as those are part of the Employment Law history and case law, so this will require that 1Ls familiarize themselves with some of the basic principles of both areas of law.
