Course Description

This course is a companion to David Graulich's previous MCLEZ class, FIVE FUNDAMENTALS OF FEDERAL EMPLOYMENT LAW. The issues in this class are drawn from emerging controversies and court decisions in 2016 and 2017. Graulich examines the alarming erosion of privacy in the workplace and how the intrusion into employees? emails and files by employers has become routine. The course will cover the proliferation of local employment laws, enacted by cities and counties, that often contradict or conflict with federal workplace laws. The rise of "the gig economy," with companies such as Uber and Lyft, has created new controversy around the question "what is an employee." Graulich will also discuss how the rise of compulsory arbitration is replacing the jury trial as a venue for resolution of employment cases.
