This book prepares students for the practice of labor law in the contemporary workplace by introducing them to the basic principles of American labor law and many of the exciting issues that labor attorneys face. The book varies from existing casebooks in several respects. First, the book is organized around contemporary problems as a means of teaching the core principles of labor law. Second, although the primary focus of the book is the National Labor Relations Act, considerable attention is given to the Railway Labor Act and public sector labor laws because of their growing relative importance in contemporary practice. Third, the book examines the intersection of the practice of labor law with anti-discrimination laws, the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Employee Retirement Income Security Act and the Occupational Safety and Health Act. Finally, the book examines the problems of labor practice in the global economy and includes examples that touch on international problems and law.
