Employment Law

In this course students will examine both federal and state laws governing public and private sector workplaces and will use examples from a number of industries such as manufacturing and construction. Among the laws to be studied are those protecting workers from discriminatory practices, that regulate wages and hours of work, that provide for job safety and health, and that afford benefits to workers who are disabled or unemployed. The focus will be on the practical application of laws and their impact on the workplace and American society.
