DESCRIPTION

For more than 40 years, practitioners have relied on The Developing Labor Law: The Board, the Courts, and the National Labor Relations Act to keep them current on U.S. labor law. This two-volume treatise, written by distinguished members of the ABA Section of Labor and Employment Law representing management, labor, and neutrals, is the essential research tool for labor and employment law practitioners. It provides an authoritative, balanced perspective on the legal rights and duties of employees, employers and unions, as well as procedures and remedies under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA).

For the specialist, this classic reference is a quick means of accessing leading cases; for the generalist, it provides an excellent summary of the law and its development. Topics covered include employer-mandated confidentiality agreements, employee handbook restrictions on solicitations, the definition of critical terms such as “supervisor” and “independent contractor,” the obligation of an employer to provide financial information requested by the union during bargaining, the rights of employees to object to payment of full union dues under a union-shop agreement, the obligation of an employee who is unlawfully discharged under the NLRA to seek interim employment, employer restrictions on the use of company email to discuss union activity, and the standards for determining whether an employer's refusal to hire a "salt" is unlawful.
