Overview

Employment Law Update, 2018 Edition analyzes recent developments in case law of interest to employment law practitioners representing plaintiffs, defendants, and labor unions and comprehensively covers recent developments in the rapidly changing employment and labor law field.

Comprised of ten chapters - each written by an expert in employment law - this updated edition provides timely, incisive analysis of critical issues. Employment Law Update, 2018 Edition provides, where appropriate, checklists, forms, and guidance on strategic considerations for litigation and other forms of dispute resolution.

Some of the new material discussed in this 2018 Edition includes:

  • How the U.S. Department of Labor enforces federal whistleblower statutes
  • Recent case law circumscribing arbitration, which can, potentially, deprive non-union workers of fundamental statutory and constitutional rights
  • Recent German embrace of minimum wage law
  • Efforts by legislatures, administrative agencies, courts, and public interest groups to transform the “soft law” of the U.N. Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights into “hard law” binding multinational corporations
  • Special problems relating to aviation personnel who blow the whistle
  • Protection for disabled veterans under the ADA and the USERRA
  • Evolving framework for enforcing the rights of the LGBT population
  • Transnational labor law applicable to expatriates
  • Application of multinational firms’ codes of conduct across national borders
  • Application of differing systems of employee rights and obligations to floating employees
