Description

This law school casebook includes materials dealing with the labor and employment law rights of public employees. It covers constitutional rights, civil service, tenure, overtime, pension, and bankruptcy laws specific to public employees, and also public employee collective bargaining statutes and activities of public-sector unions and employers. It emphasizes how the law governing the public sector workplace differs from the private sector. It also focuses on how public-sector labor rules vary significantly among states (and the federal sector) in important areas including employee coverage, union organizing, the duty to bargain, scope of bargaining, impasse resolution (strikes and alternatives to strikes), bargaining units, and grievance arbitration. The book facilitates classroom examination of different policies, issues, and concerns that arise when the employer is a government entity.
