Employment Arbitration Agreements: The Case For Ethical Standards For Dispute Resolution System Designers, Michael L. Russell 2021 Pepperdine University

Employment Arbitration Agreements: The Case For Ethical Standards For Dispute Resolution System Designers, Michael L. Russell

Pepperdine Dispute Resolution Law Journal

Dispute resolution design is an emerging field, both academically and professionally. Attorneys, mediators, and arbitrators, the other roles in the alternative dispute resolution process, have codes of ethics which guide their conduct. Dispute resolution designers, however, have no such guidelines. This article uses the example of mandatory arbitration agreements in the employment context to illustrate why this lack of ethical guidelines for dispute resolutions designers is problematic. In recent years, mandatory arbitration agreements significantly impacted employment law and litigation. The two most problematic provisions that often appear in mandatory arbitration agreements in the workplace context are cost sharing provisions and ...

Labor And Its Revenue In Islamic And Non-Islamic Economies- Dr. El Tayib Mohammad Hamid Al-Tikaina

Journal Sharia and Law

Labor in Sharia Law: The Sharia Law has laid down general rules, principles and regulating controls or restraints on economic activity and its revenue. Actually any activity in the individual’s and society's interest is deemed legal in Sharia Law if it is in accordance with these rules, which prohibit usury and any harmful produce, warn against gambling, cornering, cheating or any action leading to extortion or forcible exaction.

Defining Who Is An Employee After A.B.5: Trading Uniformity And Simplicity For Expanded Coverage, Edward A. Zelinsky 2021 The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law

Defining Who Is An Employee After A.B.5: Trading Uniformity And Simplicity For Expanded Coverage, Edward A. Zelinsky

Catholic University Law Review

A.B.5 made a significant but limited expansion of the coverage of California labor law but at a notable cost. Even as A.B.5 broadened the reach of the Golden State’s labor protections, A.B.5 also made the definition of “employee” more complex and less uniform. Those seeking federal or state legislation like A.B.5 confront the same trade-off under which greater coverage is achieved at the expense of more complexity and less uniformity in the definition of who is an employee. The same political forces and policy considerations which molded A.B.5 in ...


Whose Choice?: The Future Of Construction (And Maybe All) Labor Law, Michael J. Hayes 2021 The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law

Whose Choice?: The Future Of Construction (And Maybe All) Labor Law, Michael J. Hayes

Catholic University Law Review

The current National Labor Relations Board ("Board') since 2018 has indicated an interest in changing the law on employee representation by unions in the construction industry, culminating in a final rule issued on April 1, 2020. As the article discusses, this proposal is likely to have effects in many industries other than construction, because many other industries in the U.S. are becoming more like the construction industry has long been. The Board’s rule has changed what's required for a construction union to remain the representative of a construction employer's employees, which the Board justified as serving ...


Tenth Circuit Ruled In Favor Of Sex-Plus-Age Claims Of Discrimination Under Title Vii In The Wake Of Bostock V. Clayton County, Kayla King 2021 Boston College Law School

Tenth Circuit Ruled In Favor Of Sex-Plus-Age Claims Of Discrimination Under Title Vii In The Wake Of Bostock V. Clayton County, Kayla King

Boston College Law Review

On July 21, 2020, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit in Frappied v. Affinity Gaming Black Hawk, LLC held that sex-plus-age discrimination claims are cognizable under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. By taking a stance on the viability of sex-plus-age claims, the Tenth Circuit became the first circuit court to weigh in on the debate among the lower courts. Many federal district courts, relying on the availability of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act to address age discrimination claims, have rejected sex-plus-age claims under Title VII. This Comment argues that the Tenth ...

Professional Insufficiency As A Ground Of Dismissal From A Public Post: “A Study Of The Decisions Of The French Council Of State & The Administrative Appealate Courts”, Musa Shehada

Journal Sharia and Law

The study indicated that the dismissal of a public employee for professional insufficiency is not restricted to the conduct and behavior exercised by that employee while discharging his job duties or his failure to have good relation with his superiors or colleagues. Due to the dangerous consequences of such dismissal the French lawmaker has provided for a number of guarantees to protect ...

Reflection On The Philosophy Behind The Exemption To Notice Of Employment Termination A Study In The Light Of The Jordanian Labour Law 1996, firas kasassbeh 2021 Associate professor of civil law- College of Law - UAEU

Reflection On The Philosophy Behind The Exemption To Notice Of Employment Termination A Study In The Light Of The Jordanian Labour Law 1996, Firas Kasassbeh

Journal Sharia and Law

Under the Jordanian Labour Act 1996, it is not permissible for the employer to terminate the employee’s contract without giving the labourer/ employee at least one month notice before the date of termination. This is because sudden dismissal may cause hardship on the employee such as finding him/herself unemployed. However, there are cases where the employer is exempted from giving such notice due to either the nature of the contract (such as in the case of definite period contracts and the case of employment under probation), or the nature of termination (such as in the cases where the ...

Hybrid Federalism And The Employee Right To Disconnect, Paul M. Secunda 2021 Pepperdine University

Hybrid Federalism And The Employee Right To Disconnect, Paul M. Secunda

Pepperdine Law Review

The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) administers specific workplace and health standards that generally and expressly preempt the entire field of workplace safety and health law. However, where such federal OSHA standards do not exist or states have developed their own approved OSHA plans, OSHA does not merely set a regulatory floor either. A type of “hybrid federalism” has been established, meaning a strong federal-based field preemption approach to labor and employment law issues, but tied to a conflict preemption approach. Applying this hybrid preemption approach to the employee right to disconnect problem provides the best opportunity to ...

Rittmann V. Amazon.Com, Inc.: Ninth Circuit Rules Amazon’S Drivers Fall Within The Federal Arbitration Act’S “Transportation Worker Exemption”, Isabella Borges 2021 Golden Gate University School of Law

Rittmann V. Amazon.Com, Inc.: Ninth Circuit Rules Amazon’S Drivers Fall Within The Federal Arbitration Act’S “Transportation Worker Exemption”, Isabella Borges

Golden Gate University Law Review

Amazon is among a large list of corporations that have long tried to enforce mandatory arbitration against delivery drivers who file suit in their respective jurisdictions. In recent years, delivery drivers have decided to fight back against private arbitration and to have their legal battles heard in court. In these cases, delivery drivers argue that they are exempt from arbitration under the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”) because they are engaged in interstate commerce. Section 1 of the FAA exempts from arbitration “contracts of employment of seaman, railroad employees, or any other class of workers engaged in foreign or interstate commerce ...

This paper also connects the analysis of the origin of this freedom in a comparative approach to both the French and the Syrian laws, drawing on the French experience and the specific steps taken by the French legislator in this regards. To that ...
