This is a survey of the law of work, focusing on the rights of individual employees. We cover common law and statutory regulation of employment termination and employee mobility, statutory regulation of wages, and working conditions, harassment, safety, privacy, leaves of absence, and compensation for illness and injury. The course will focus especially on the challenges of regulating work in the global economy in which compliance with legal requirements is unequally distributed across sectors. This course focuses on the rights of individual employees; it does not overlap with Labor Law (which covers the law of unions and collective representation) or Employment Discrimination (which covers status-based discrimination).
