Employment and Labor Law

employment-2 web

For most individuals engaged in the workforce, labor and employment law contributes greatly to the nature of the employer-employee relationship. Beginning with child labor statutes and running through age discrimination and pension laws, the law has something to say on nearly every issue confronting employees during their working years — wages, hours, fringe benefits, safety and health, job security, discrimination, and employee privacy.

At Moritz, students study labor and employment law with faculty who enjoy national reputations for their scholarship in this important public policy area. Students engaged in the critical analysis of constitutional, statutory, and common law issues are encouraged to confront complex and controversial public policy problems. Moritz graduates have gone on to represent unions, individual workers, private employers, federal and state government agencies, and public interest organizations active in this field.
