Introduction to U.S. Labor and Employment Law

About

Explore the history and context that created the current system of labor and employment law in the United States. Focusing primarily on the National Labor Relations Act, the Wisconsin Act 10, Right to Work, and a survey of employments laws, we discuss the circumstances that led to the current legal framework and its limitations to protect employees in the modern economy. This three-evening live webinar will underline the conditions and the approach taken by the U.S. legal system rather than provide professional training, and is intended for anyone with an interest or curiosity about how the law serves and does not serve the American workforce.

In addition to the live webinars on October 28, November 4 and 11, online content will also be available to class registrants.
