More on Estreicher-Lester Concepts and Insights Employment Law

Employmentlaw As Rick pointed out a couple of weeks ago, Samuel Estreicher (NYU) and Gillian Lester (Berkeley) just published their new book Employment Law (Foundation Press; part of the Concepts and Insights Series).  Now fresh off the presses is the Table of Contents of this new book.

Here's a description of the book:

This textbook is a one-volume treatment of the basic analytical structure and legal policy issues informing U.S. employment law. The full range of the subject matter is examined with chapters on defining who are employees (as opposed to independent contractors); employment contracts; employment torts; workplace privacy; post-termination restraints and workplace intellectual property issues; employee benefits; wage-hour laws; occupational safety; workers' compensation; and unemployment compensation.

Introductory chapters are also included on the economic analysis of employment regulation, employment discrimination, union organization, and collective bargaining laws. The book is designed as a complement for all leading casebooks on employment law, in that it approaches the issues in a comprehensive manner that will enable the student to understand how these laws interact in particular cases. Unlike other employment law treatises, this book moves well beyond the descriptive to empower the student in tackling difficult analytical and policy issues in the field.
