Labor law or employment law course, or related background, strongly recommended (not required). This course will explore the challenges in enforcing the New Deal era National Labor Relations Act and other worker protection laws in a dramatically changed social and economic environment, and the evolving responses to these challenges. Highlights of the course include: changing nature of work and employment relationships (who's an employee?); the fissurization of the labor market (who's the employer); new technologies, privacy concerns and opportunities for worker activism; worker centers and community based worker organization; the New Deal collective bargaining model and today's competitive economy, labor market conditions and worker preferences; alternatives for worker representation (e.g., German style works councils); techniques and strategies to improve labor management relationships; privatized resolution of employment based disputes; local and global strategies for innovation; financialization of the economy and its impact on labor and management relationships; and the complexity of administering labor law in a politically polarized climate.
