Employment Law, Fifth Edition examines the most dynamic topics in employment law, from employee status and contract formation to termination and post-termination issues. The text introduces students to major issues and problems in labor policy and the practice of employment law, moving from one practical or policy area to the next, recalling and expanding students’ understanding of basic legal principles in particular contexts, and introducing laws specially designed for the protection of employees and other individual workers.

  • Update on the classification of workers as employees or independent contractors
  • The Supreme Court’s Bostick decision and discrimination on the basis of LGBT status
  • New pay transparency laws
  • The impact of COVID on workplace safety and workers’ compensation law
  • New discussions of how social media, electronic surveillance, and artificial intelligence are affecting the workplace
  • New developments in the arbitration of employment disputes, including the impact of the #MeToo movement and the Ending Forced Arbitration of Sexual Assault and Sexual Harassment Act of 2021

  • Coverage that fills the gap between traditional labor (e.g., collective bargaining) and discrimination courses
  • Thorough treatment of basic employment law doctrine and legislation
  • Thought-provoking cases and the hot-button issues
