EMPLOYMENT AND LABOR LAW: A BEGINNER'S GUIDE [10 January 2013]
January 10, 2013 by Barbara Bavis
This post is co-authored by Barbara Bavis and Robert Brammer, Legal Reference Librarians.
Continuing with our Beginner’s Guide series, we turn next to labor and employment law. This area of the law has been prominent in the news over the past several months, particularly in light of the union stronghold of the Midwest, Michigan, becoming a right to work state with the passage of the Workplace Fairness and Equity Act. Further, the United States Supreme Court recently heard arguments in Vance v. Ball State University, which may redefine who is a “supervisor” under the purview of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
