LAWS 7726 Labor and Employment Arbitration (Spring: 2 )

Course Description

This course will examine arbitration as a dispute-resolution mechanism for disputes arising in the workplace (unionized and non-unionized). First, the course will examine the widely accepted use of arbitration to resolve disputes under public and private sector collective bargaining agreements (Labor Arbitration). Later, it will address the legal principles governing arbitration to resolve disputes arising under employment regulation statutes like Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. In addition, we'll look at disputes that arise out of individual contracts of employment in the non-unionized workplace (Employment Arbitration). The course will both study the substantive law, and, use simulations to teach the practical skills necessary to represent clients in both labor and employment cases and in arbitration generally. These practical skills include case preparation, opening and closing statements, and direct- and cross-examination of witnesses. Enrollment is limited to 15 student
