This employment law supplement enables students to apply employment law concepts in a realistic lawyering context. Simulated practice problems facilitate the development of fact-finding, analytical, advocacy, ethical client counseling, negotiation, and strategic thinking skills. Research exercises expand student research skills and reinforce the importance of state law and administrative law and guidance.

The twenty-two exercises address employment discrimination, wages, hours, conditions of work, individual employment rights, and group terminations. Topics include the administrative process, the use of arrest and conviction records during the hiring process, child labor, deductions from wages, surveillance on employees’ out-of-work activities, non-competition agreements, severance agreements, WARN Act notices, and more.

The teacher’s manual provides substantive answers to the questions raised and tips for using and customizing the exercises. It also identifies learning outcomes for each exercise and assessment materials.
