Labor Law II -

Required 2nd Year Course

The second course in labor law builds on the first course. It covers additional substantive law issues applicable to all unions subject to the NLRA. Some of the core concepts covered have applicability to public sector unions and provide important guides and suggestions even where not strictly applicable. Subjects covered include the union's duty of fair representation, Title VII and ADA discrimination claims and how such claims can overlap with the union grievance process; how the Family Medical Leave Act and other state medical leave laws, including workers compensation can overlap with collective bargaining agreements; regulation of the internal affairs of unions by the US Department of Labor; the fiduciary duty and obligations of union officers in the handling of the finances of the union; and more!
