Jonathan Harkavy (Patterson Harkavy) has just posted on SSRN his paper, "2013 Supreme Court Employment Law Commentary." The abstract:
This article reviews in detail the entire body of employment-related decisions of the 2012 October Term of the Supreme Court of the United States and provides a summary and author's commentary on each case. The article covers not only traditional employment decisions, but also arbitration, class action and other adjective issues relating to how employment disputes are litigated and resolved. The author (who has published this annual review for more than two decades) also offers a number of observations about larger themes, jurisprudential and otherwise, revealed by the Court's oversight of the employment relationship. Finally, the article summarizes the grants of certiorari in employment-related cases for the upcoming term.
