Submissions are due on Monday, June 17, 2013 for the Eighth Annual Seton Hall Employment & Labor Law Scholars' Forum to be held October 11-12th. We welcome proposals from relatively junior scholars (untenured, newly tenured, or prospective professors) across the spectrum of Employment and Labor Law. Proposals should be 3-5 pages in length and can be submitted to me at email@example.com.

- Among the reasons for my needing to do a quick roundup is preparations for two summer conferences:
1. The inagural Labour Law Research Network (LLRN) conference in Barcelona next week. The program looks great, present company notwithstanding.
2. The annual Southeastern Association of Law Schools (SEALS) conference, Aug. 4-10 in West Palm Beach (and to all those who are thinking boondoggle--yes, it's in a nice place, but we take over an entire Southern Florida hotel in August and, as a result, get incredibly cheap rates). As has been the case for the last several years--primarily due to the work of Michael Green and Paul Secunda--there are numerous labor and employment panels (by my count, six panels with a primary L&E focus, plus many more related). One new feature this year at SEALS is a "New Voices" series that involves a call for papers from scholars with five years or less experience to discuss works-in-progress with more senior faculty--we have a L&E New Voices panel with several great-looking papers.
- The May unemployment numbers are in: 175,000 new jobs, with an 7.6% unemployment rate (up from 7.5% the month before). The numbers look OK--a bit better than projected--and there seems to be a slight decrease in discouraged workers.
- In a case in which Connecticut state employees challenged their dismissal, the Second Cir. granted summary judgment to the plaintiffs, holding that the layoffs targeted union members. According to the court, this violated their First Amendment right to association and, in doing so, applied strict scrutiny. Given that the standard for these cases has been a mess of late, expect a cert. petition and a decent likelihood of it being granted.
- An employer recently settled charges that it fired two workers, and sued one of them, for filing charges with the NLRB. In addition to paying $315,000, the employer agreed to drop the suit, rescind a wage-gag rule, and stop paying an attorney to represent employees in a coercive manner (the attorney claimed to represent the employees--allegedly via coercion--and required all contact with employees to go to him first. Even by labor law standards, that's some pretty agressive action.
- An update on the cert. petition and amicus briefs for Noel Canning. The conference is set for June 20. My favorite quote from the Washington Post article:
“This stuff is catnip for law nerds,” Washington lawyer John P. Elwood wrote in a post on the legal blog the Volokh Conspiracy — which, it should be said, is itself catnip for law nerds.
- Speaking of the dysfunctional state of NLRB appointments, former member Peter Hurtgen suggests a temporary compromise of having only two Democratic and two Republic members. I admire Hurtgen, but I'm not sure that having the White House give up its normal prerogative to have a majority on the NLRB solves anything--seems like it simply gives the minority party more incentive to block nominations.
- Also, in NLRB news--the Board refused to adopt the General Counsel's suggestion to change the Spielberg/Olin arbitration deferral standards. The GC wanted more limited deferral, to occur only when it is shown that the arbitrator adequately considered the statutory rights at issue. Not entirely clear why the NLRB didn't agree, but it shows that descriptions of the NLRB as being a hack for union interests isn't accurate.
- The Fourth Circuit recently issued a decision in a sexual harassment case in which the alleged harasser commited suicide after the accusation was made. The court affirmed summary judgment for the employer in yet another case that shows, in spite of popular opinion, how difficult it is to win sexual harassment claims.
Hat Tip: Jonathan Harkavy, Patrick Kavanagh, and others.

- LEL issues raised by facebook and other social media sites. EVERY country in the world is dealing with the issue of how to deal with an employee who is fired for criticizing her boss/company. My favorite: the employee who "liked" a facebook friend's comment that the employee's boss "is as worthless as a chocolate teapot."
- Outsourcing (e.g., to temporary staffing agencies) as a means of avoiding benefits and unfair dismissal protections required for "employees".
- The disembowelment of trade unionism.
- The difficulty of collective bargaining when the workers are in one country (with one set of laws and expectations) and ownership/management is in a different country.
- The efficacy of labor tribunals / labor courts for resolving labor disputes.
- Negotiating in the shadow of "law" that is unenforced or a "judiciary" that is corrupt and easily bribed.
- Sex discrimination laws, even if effective at addressing discrimination in urban employment settings, do little or nothing to address socially entrenched gender attitudes and employment practices in rural areas.

I'm writing to you to share the call for papers for a International Comparative Sciences Symposium in Sofia which is to be held in October this year. There are two sessions there which might be of interest to our colleagues:
- comparative law session;
- comparative labour studies session.
If you consider this event to be of possible interest to your colleagues working in the field of labour law (and possibly to your non-legal and/or non-labour-law colleagues as well), please feel free to share it with them. Please find below the third call for abstracts for this Symposium as forwarded to me by my Slovenian colleague and the link to the Symposium website.
The Symposium is a new initiative of the Bulgarian Comparative Education Society and our colleagues from the Society kindly asked me and other comparativists to share the information on this Symposium as widely as possible. We all know how difficult it may be sometimes to convene an international event for the first time at a national level. Therefore I believe it'd be a good idea to support this undertaking at least by spreading the information about it.
Here is the call for paper and conference website and registration information:
This is our Third Call for abstracts, full papers and roundtables to be submitted to the International Symposium on Comparative Sciences that will be organized by the Bulgarian Comparative Education Society and held in Sofia, Bulgaria, 8 - 11 October 2013. Please be informed that the abstract submission deadline is extended by 31 May.
This will be a forum where different comparative sciences can meet and discuss problems of common interest. Scholars from the following sciences are invited: Comparative Education, Comparative Psychology, Comparative Sociology, Comparative Religion, Comparative Linguistics, Comparative Literature, Comparative Civilization Studies, Comparative Mythology, Comparative Anthropology, Comparative Law, Comparative History, Comparative Labour Studies.
Hope you will find this Symposium productive and interesting. For more information please visit the Symposium website.

ADAPT International Conference: Internship and Traineeship for Students and Young people. Training, School-to-work Transition or Exploitation?
We are pleased to announce that ADAPT and the International Doctoral School in Human Capital and Labour Relations are organizing the international conference: Internship and Traineeship for Students and Young people. Training, School-to-work Transition or Exploitation?, which is going to take place on 25-26 October 2013 at the University of Bergamo (Italy).
The conference is part of the ADAPT international events on Productivity, Investment in Human Capital and the Challenge of Youth Employment, which resulted in three volumes making up the ADAPT Labour Studies Book-Series edited by Cambridge Scholars Publishing and it aims at contributing to the current debate on youth unemployment and school-to-work transition.
Almost five years after the onset of the crisis, youth unemployment witnessed a further worsening. Besides persistent unemployment, the quality of youth employment is also challenged by the increase in non-standard, temporary, part-time and informal work. Tools to fill the youth productivity gap and ease school-to-work transition do exist, but sometimes they are misleadingly used and implemented. This is the case of traineeships, also known as internships or stages, which are conceived and implemented differently cross-nationally.
ADAPT and the International Doctoral School in Human Capital and Labour Relations invite professors, researchers, doctoral students, experts, practitioners and all those interested in the conference topics to submit papers. Deadline for abstract submission is 1st July 2013. We particularly encourage graduate students to submit papers.
The annual Transgender Law Institute will convene on August 22, 2013 at the National LGBT Bar Association’s 25th Anniversary Lavender Law® Conference & Career Fair. Lavender Law will be held August 22-24, 2013 at the Marriot Marquis in San Francisco, California. The Institute’s theme this year is “25 Years of Transgender Law.”
Institute participants will look back on the trans law movement’s history and examine substantive achievements, with an eye toward cutting-edge issues still to be tackled. Workshops will focus on employment law following Macy v. Holder, the EEOC’s precedent setting decision; immigration; health care; and increasing trans participation in the legal profession.
The keynote speaker for the Transgender Law Institute will be Shannon Price Minter, Legal Director of the National Center for Lesbian Rights, one of the nation’s leading advocacy organizations for the LGBT community. Mr. Minter, an openly transgender attorney, is known for his tireless work advocating and litigating to advance LGBT rights since the mid-1990s.

Continuing a conversation that was started on this blog a couple of weeks, Joe Lurie of the Peggy Browning Fund writes to provide his take on the academic future of labor and employment law in the greater legal academy and what his group, the Peggy Browning Fund, is doing to help to ensure the future of labor law in particular:
As most of you know, the Peggy Browning Fund’s core mission is educating law students as to the rights and needs of workers. As recently as 20 years ago, law schools across the country recognized this educational goal as an important part of their curriculum. Unfortunately, today this is no longer the case. On April 11, 2013, Reuters reported that Professor Paul Secunda, who teaches labor and employment law at Marquette University School of Law, stated that “law schools give labor and employment law short shrift.” Professsor Secunda went on to say that “hiring among law school professors specializing in labor and employment dropped this year, and the field is overlooked at many law schools.”
Thanks to your help, we have made, and continue to make, an impact in the education and recruitment of young lawyers for the labor movement. Our 10-week summer fellowship program and our annual National Law Students Workers’ Rights Conference provide the training and education many law students want but do not receive in law school. We offer law students wide-ranging opportunities to work for social and economic justice. Building on these opportunities, many of our alumni have gone on to work for unions, the National Labor Relations Board, the U.S. Department of Labor, worker centers and union-side law firms.
Law schools have created a vacuum in labor law and employment law legal education. Even though we are proud of increasing the number of fellows we placed to 70 positions, we cannot begin to fill this vacuum. This year we received well over 500 applications for the 70 fellowship positions we can afford to offer. The waiting list for unions and worker centers wanting our students is long and continues to grow. With your help, we can continue to strengthen the labor movement by educating the next generation of lawyers committed to working for economic and social justice.
Thanks to Joe and the Peggy Browning Fund for penning this piece and I can state from personal experience that my students over the years have very much enjoyed participating in the group's national conference and fellowship programs.
Just another avenue (albeit on the union side of things) for providing the labor and employment law skills and education students need to be successful attorneys in this vital area of study.

We posted here an announcement of the Eleventh Conference in commemoration of Prof. Marco Biagi. The Conference, organized by the Marco Biagi Foundation, took place in Modena (Italy) on 18 and 19 March 2013. Susan Bisom-Rapp (Thomas Jefferson) attended and presented, and I asked her to prepare a short description of the Conference for us, both to describe the Conference itself and also to talk about why the Conference might be of interest to American LEL professors. Here's her report:
Every year since 2003, the Marco Biagi Foundation has hosted an international conference in Modena, Italy devoted to international and comparative employment and labor relations. This year’s conference, The Transnational Dimension of Labor Relations: A New Order in the Making?, brought together scholars from Europe, Africa, and the Americas, who analyzed the challenges of regulating work, promoting labor standards, and addressing increasing economic inequality in the wake of the global economic crisis. Particular attention was given to new forms of transnational collective bargaining, emerging hard and soft law techniques to influence the conduct of transnational corporations, the difficulty of establishing fair conditions of work for migrants, and the lack of a clear hierarchy of law-making authority at the international level. Participants addressed these issues from a number of disciplines including law, industrial relations, economics, and human resource management.
Part of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Italy, the Marco Biagi Foundation is also home to the International Doctoral Research School in Labour Relations, which promotes PhD work that is comparative and interdisciplinary. To advance the work of its own students, and establish links with PhD and post-doctoral students around the world, the Foundation launched its Young Scholars’ Workshop last year. This year, we heard and commented on papers from PhD students from Norway, Italy, Spain, South Africa, Austria, Estonia, and Hungary. The chance to provide feedback from an outsider’s perspective – that of an American law professor – was fun for me and, I hope, helpful for them. For me, this session has become a highlight of the annual conference.
Mike Zimmer (Loyola University Chicago) and I were first introduced to the Foundation’s annual conference in 2007 by our co-author Roger Blanpain (Universities of Leuven and Tilburg, Belgium and the Netherlands). Roger, a prolific scholar in the field of comparative labor and employment law, attends most years, as do some of the most influential scholars in that field, including Manfred Weiss (J.W. Goethe University, Frankfurt, Germany), Csilla Kollonay-Lehoczy (Central European University, Budapest, Hungary), Jacques Rojot, (University of Paris II – Panthéon Assas, France), Alan Neal (University of Warwick, U.K.), and Janice Bellace (The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania). The opportunity for conversations and exchange with these scholars and others has kept me coming back to Modena annually since then. It has also led to my fruitful collaboration with Malcolm Sargeant (Middlesex University Business School, London, U.K.), with whom I have written several articles on comparative age discrimination law. Serving on the Foundation’s international council has helped me understand the challenges facing higher education in Europe. I recommend this kind of involvement to American legal scholars interested in a fresh perspective on the challenges and possible solutions to the problems we confront at home. I only worry that in this age of austerity and shrinking travel budgets, it will become increasingly difficult for those in the American legal academy to participate in conferences outside our borders. Finding ways to do it may take some creative planning, but, at least in my experience, it will be well worth the effort.
Many thanks, Susan!

The UNLV William S. Boyd School of Law is pleased to host the 8th Annual Colloquium on Current Scholarship in Labor and Employment Law on September 27-28, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
As many of you already know, this is a terrific opportunity to get to know colleagues in an informal setting and exchange ideas as we discuss works-in-progress. Past participants likely would agree that the friendly, low-key atmosphere and productive sessions, as well as the chance to socialize with our colleagues, make this gathering especially fun and valuable.
The Colloquium will begin with a breakfast at the UNLV Tam Alumni Center on Friday morning. We will workshop papers all day Friday through Saturday afternoon. Exact times TBD; check the event webpage for updates as the Colloquium approaches. Breakfast, lunch, and break services will be provided on site at Boyd on Friday; breakfast, break services, and a wrap-up dessert reception will be offered on Saturday (lunch on your own). On Friday evening, a special dinner and panel discussion will be held at the Culinary Union (Local 226) banquet hall.
