The formal title of this course, Law 745, is “Labor Relations” but, more accurately, should be called “Introduction to Labor & Employment Law.” “Labor law” typically refers to “traditional” labor law, i.e., legal issues involving unions and/or arising under the National Labor Relations Act, and public sector labor laws. “Employment law” is everything else: individual employment rights; discrimination law; family medical leave, health and safety, plant closing notice laws, and wage and hour law. This course is intended to be a sampler platter, of sorts. The goal is to get a taste of each of the more interesting areas that comprise Labor & Employment law.
