Employment Law: Cases and Materials
Employment law continues to be an exciting and fast-moving area of law, in both the courts and academia. Throughout this well-received book, the authors address the proper roles of economic incentives and legal regulations in achieving desirable outcomes in the workplace, encouraging students to question common assumptions underlying authority in the workplace, discuss simple rules and effective rules and their contrast, and examine the varied legal responses to problems in the workplace. Adaptable to a three- or four-hour course, this casebook contains few internal cross-references so that chapters can be taught out of sequence without damage to the overall integrity of the course. The Fourth Edition of Employment Law: Cases and Materials includes a new chapter on leave time, a revamped section on enforcement, and reflects changes necessitated by new developments in employment law. In the area of new developments, the Fourth Edition includes the Desert Palace and Jesperson decisions, considers Enron and the Pension Protection Act of 2006, and new materials on whistleblowing and Sarbanes-Oxley.
