How Covid is Changing Employment Law
Employment Law responds to major upheavals, and this year, due to the pandemic, we saw that happen in real time. This is a White Paper produced by compiling research from the students in my Fall 2020 Employment Law course. Because the rate of change so dynamic, and so profound it is straining the systems of legal ordering. We share this White Paper with practicing lawyers, industry leaders, workers’ groups, and policy makers to demonstrate the breadth of change in the overall picture of the world of work.
I am proud of each of the contributors:

Much of my research has concerned the precarity of at-will employment. You can find the articles:
