This volume contains papers presented at the 49th Annual Conference on Labor held at New York University. This long-standing conference brings together government officials; representatives of companies, labor unions, and employees; lawyers; and human resources specialists. In this vital forum, participants discuss important developments in U.S. labor law and human resources affecting the American workplace and share new ideas and perspectives for improving the practice.
The chapters in this volume cover both recent developments and the very current issues likely to play a part in future developments. Topics discussed include e-mail policies, pre-dispute arbitration agreements, affirmative action after Adarand, and anti-workplace romance policies. The list of contributors comprises professors as well as attorneys for the Department of Justice, private firms, and corporations.
The papers contained in the Proceedings will assist and appeal to all concerned with contemporary labor law issues in general and in particular with how the United States is considering these issues.
