I inadvertently overlooked a couple of student comments earlier this week. Both are well-written articles on very timely topics:
- Kristen A. Williams (left), Employing Ex-Offenders: Shifting the Evaluation of Workplace Risks and Opportunities from Employers to Corrections, 55 UCLA L. Rev. 521 (2007) (states should (1) shift from employers to corrections departments risk-assessments related to ex-offenders, (2) forbid most discrimination against ex-offenders, and (3) limit employer liability for hiring ex-offenders).
- Rachael M. Simon (right), Workers on the March: Work Stoppages, Public Rallies, and the National Labor Relations Act, 56 Catholic U. L. Rev. 1273 (2007) (arguing that attendance at immigration reform rallies is a protected activity under Section 7 of the NLRA, and that employer discipline based upon such attendance is an unfair labor practice).
