The Issue Class, Joseph A. Seiner 2015 University of South Carolina School of Law

The Issue Class, Joseph A. Seiner

Boston College Law Review

In 2011, in Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. v. Dukes, the Supreme Court refused to certify a proposed class of one and a half million female workers who had alleged that the nation’s largest private employer had discriminated against them on the basis of their sex. The academic response to the case has been highly critical of the Court’s decision. This Article does not weigh in on the debate of whether the Court missed the mark. Instead, this Article addresses a more fundamental question that has gone completely unexplored: what is the best tool currently available for workers to pursue ...

Social Media And The Workplace: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love Privacy Settings And The Nlrb, Kathleen Carlson 2015 University of Florida Levin College of Law

Social Media And The Workplace: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love Privacy Settings And The Nlrb, Kathleen Carlson

Florida Law Review

Social media has permeated every aspect of society. The use of social media can easily lead to issues in an employment law context when employees suffer adverse employment actions based on the information they choose to share via their personal social media websites. Today’s laws concerning online privacy are in a nebulous state and have led some observers to suggest that employees who use social media may not find adequate legal protection from wrongful termination. This Note refutes this contention by analyzing current laws that may protect employees from adverse employment actions due to their use of social media ...


Labor Decision In Security Guard Case May Set New Precedence, LA Sentinel 2015 Golden Gate University School of Law

Labor Decision In Security Guard Case May Set New Precedence, La Sentinel

Articles About GGU Law

Employees required to stay at a worksite while on call should be compensated for all their hours, including sleep time, the California Supreme Court has ruled in a case involving a company based in Gardena. The state’s highest court said Thursday that security guards who were obligated to stay in trailers on worksites in case they were needed were entitled to be paid for their time, even if they spent it watching TV, scouring the Internet or dozing.


Unpaid Interns & The Practice Of Unprotected Working: Building From A History Of Learning On The Job; A Note, Troy D. Warner 2015 Valparaiso University School of Law

Unpaid Interns & The Practice Of Unprotected Working: Building From A History Of Learning On The Job; A Note, Troy D. Warner

Troy D Warner

Student interns are provided protection from gender discrimination and sexual harassment in their student capacity by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (CRA), and as employees by Title IX of the CRA. However unpaid student interns are neither considered students nor employees, and thus slip through the cracks of coverage provided by Titles VII & IX. They are working unprotected by the law from sexual harassment and sexual discrimination. The Department of Labor has two classifications created by regulations, which provide protections to workers not legally employees, just as unpaid interns are not employees.

The Department of Labor ...


Work Made For Hire – Analyzing The Multifactor Balancing Test, Ryan G. Vacca 2015 University of Akron School of Law

Work Made For Hire – Analyzing The Multifactor Balancing Test, Ryan G. Vacca

Akron Law Publications

Authorship, and hence, initial ownership of copyrighted works is oftentimes controlled by the 1976 Copyright Act’s work made for hire doctrine. This doctrine states that works created by employees within the scope of their employment result in the employer owning the copyright. One key determination in this analysis is whether the hired party is an employee or independent contractor. In 1989, the U.S. Supreme Court, in CCNV v. Reid, answered the question of how employees are distinguished from independent contractors by setting forth a list of factors courts should consider. Unfortunately, the Supreme Court did not give further ...

Are Unions A Constitutional Anomaly?, Cynthia Estlund 2015 NYU School of Law

Are Unions A Constitutional Anomaly?, Cynthia Estlund

New York University Public Law and Legal Theory Working Papers

Constitutional controversy has long percolated over regulatory structures in which private actors play a leading role. Some of those challenges hinge on claims of compelled speech or association, and assert a constitutional “right to refrain” from association with private organizations. The single biggest target of those challenges has been organized labor. Last Term’s decision in Harris v. Quinn is illustrative. In Harris the Court proclaimed that unions’ ability to collect an agency fee from objecting non-members, pursuant to a constitutional compromise struck by the Court itself and blessed many times over a half-century, is an “anomaly” that could not ...


Employee Electronic Communications In A Boundaryless World, Robert Sprague 2015 University of Wyoming

Employee Electronic Communications In A Boundaryless World, Robert Sprague

Robert Sprague

In 2007, the National Labor Relations Board decided that an employer could maintain an email communications policy that prohibits nonwork-related messages, even if those messages involved communications otherwise protected under the National Labor Relations Act. In December 2014, the National Labor Relations Board reversed this holding, but in doing so, limited its decision to just workplace email. This article argues that such a prescription is outdated and archaic in light of today’s modern workplace filled with communications devices and systems that blur the distinction between work and personal life. This article explains that such a prescription can cause employees ...
