Law School Description
This course covers the employment relationship in all its forms and the legal rights and duties which arise under both common law and statutory sources. In this non-unionized setting the employers’ rules dominate except as may be limited by statutes or common law contract or tort law. A systematic analysis of those rights and duties are discussed within the context of modern human resource management, covering workers first as an applicant through recruitment, then as an employee entitled to certain rights and benefits of employment, and finally in terms of termination. Course materials focus on the practical application of labor and employment law.
