Individual Autonomy And Collective Empowerment In Labor Law: Union Membership Resignations And Strikebreaking In The New Economy, David Abraham Dec 1988

Individual Autonomy And Collective Empowerment In Labor Law: Union Membership Resignations And Strikebreaking In The New Economy, David Abraham

Articles

In this Article, Doctor Abraham studies the tensions between individual rights and theories of collective action in the context of union membership resignations and strikebreaking. He argues that recent judicial and executive tendencies to value individual worker autonomy over collective union action are misguided, lacking a basis in both legal precedent and social reality. In support of his view, Abraham first explores the philosophical and historical-sociological roots of labor and labor-capital relations, focusing on the meaning of employment and the history of collective action. Next, he examines the social and legal origins of the judiciary's recent tendency to increase union …

Reconciling Collective Bargaining With Employee Supervision Of Management, Michael C. Harper Nov 1988

Reconciling Collective Bargaining With Employee Supervision Of Management, Michael C. Harper

Faculty Scholarship

The realities of economic organization in modern industrial states pose a critical dilemma for all who care about democratic ideals. Technological developments and attendant complicated divisions of work have enabled these states to transform their citizens' standards of living; such developments have also, however, brought hierarchical economic organizations' that are unresponsive to the influence of most individual employees. A society that claims to be democratic cannot ignore this condition.2 Enhancing individuals' control over their own lives requires institutions that will facilitate democratic decisionmaking about economic production as well as governmental authority.

This Article contributes to thought about such institutions …

Absolute Immunity For State-Law Torts Under Westfall V. Erwin: How Much Discretion Is Enough?, Karl R. Rábago

Elisabeth Haub School of Law Faculty Publications

The plaintiff who seeks to maintain an action in tort against a federal employee has basically two choices. First, after complying with various procedural requirements, the plaintiff may initiate suit under the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA) against the United States. The act is a waiver of sovereign immunity and, in spite of the existence of exceptions to its coverage, has generally been interpreted broadly.

The other alternative available to the plaintiff is a suit against the employee in his individual capacity based upon either state-law or constitutional tort. One of the employee's first lines of defense against such actions …

A Comparative Analysis Of Unfair Dismissal Law With Particular Reference To The Law As It Pertains To The South African Worker, Haydn T. Hillestad Jan 1988

A Comparative Analysis Of Unfair Dismissal Law With Particular Reference To The Law As It Pertains To The South African Worker, Haydn T. Hillestad

LLM Theses and Essays

This paper will begin with an investigation of the activity of the International Labour Organization (ILO) in domestic employment laws. Using this as a yardstick, a comparative analysis of the unfair dismissal laws of the United States and some foreign countries (mainly Western European) will be undertaken. Finally, the issue will be addressed in the South African context. An assessment will be made of the relative quality of the protection afforded workers in South Africa and, using conclusions reached from the comparative study, the validity of calls for a general unfair dismissal statute in the country will be considered.

The Uncertain Status Of Post-Employment Non-Compete Covenants In Texas, Jon H. Sylvester Jan 1988

The Uncertain Status Of Post-Employment Non-Compete Covenants In Texas, Jon H. Sylvester

Publications

A post-employment non-compete covenant is an agreement by an employee that, after termination of employment he or she will not compete with his or her former employer-usually within a specified geographic area and for a specified period of time. Such covenants are standard parts of many employment contracts.

Under the long standing common law of contracts, non-compete covenants are generally suspect as restraints of trade. Post-employment non-compete covenants also bear a strong presumption of unfairness because of the superior bargaining power almost invariably wielded by the employer. Nevertheless most jurisdictions, including Texas, have traditionally enforced post-employment non-compete covenants within the …

Safeguarding Employment For U.S. Workers: Do Undocumenteds Take Away Jobs?, Stephen A. Rosenbaum

Publications

For more than five years, the Immigration and Naturalization Service (hereinafter, INS) has been stymied in its efforts to implement a rule prohibiting aliens from working while out on bond pending deportation or exclusion. Like defendants awaiting trial in the criminal justice system, aliens charged with violating U.S. immigration laws are typically allowed to post bond pending a hearing on the merits. The U.S. Attorney General has the authority to prescribe conditions governing an alien's release under bond, a period that could take a year or more. From 1973 to 1983, INS regulations authorized District Directors, with approval from the …

Unions And Urinalysis, Deborah A. Schmedemann Jan 1988

Unions And Urinalysis, Deborah A. Schmedemann

Faculty Scholarship

Many private employers seem to be busy deciding whether and how to test employees for drug use. Presumably most of these decisions are made by management acting alone. However, in unionized workplaces—one out of five private sector employees are represented by unions—federal labor law prescribes a different method. That method features collective bargaining by unions and management to set the rules, the use of a private third-party neutral to resolve disputes which arise under those rules (arbitration), and relatively little involvement by the government (the National Labor Relations Board, legislatures, and the courts). This system that labor law prescribes for …


Mental Impairments And The Rehabilitation Act Of 1973, David Allen Larson Jan 1988

Mental Impairments And The Rehabilitation Act Of 1973, David Allen Larson

Faculty Scholarship

This article examines the question of whether an asserted mental disorder should be regarded as a statutory impairment. The article begins by outlining the Rehabilitation Act and by discussing the diagnostic difficulties that exist in the mental health field. It then surveys specific cases arising under the Rehabilitation Act. Selected cases reviewing state statutory language are also examined. The article provides a broad discussion of the questions and concerns that must be considered when formulating a nondiscrimination policy protecting mentally impaired persons. It concludes by suggesting an approach for handling cases alleging discrimination due to a mental impairment.
