Public Sector Labor and Employment Law

As the rate of unionism among public sector employees continues to outstrip that of the private sector, and as government assumes vital functions such airport security screening that were previously performed by the private sector, an understanding of the unique attributes of public sector employment is essential for those who contemplate practice in the labor and employment areas. This course will primarily examine the laws affecting public sector unionism and will secondarily explore protections that accrue to both unionized and non-unionized public employees alike, such as constitutional and civil service laws. The course will compare and contrast National Labor Relations Act law with public employee union law.
