Part One covers the protective legislation that deals with regulation of wages and hours of work and industrial health and safety; labor relations law, including union/management relationships and collective bargaining; and employment law statutes that prohibit discrimination on the basis of protected classes. Also covered are topics such as unemployment insurance; protections of employees against their unions under the Landrum-Griffin Act; the doctrine of the duty of fair representation; and the constitutional rights of public sector employees under the First and Fourth Amendments.
Part Two focuses on the essential questions related to workers’ compensation law in New York State, including who is covered, the exclusive remedy doctrine and the waiver of benefits. This part also discusses the difference between workers’ compensation and disability benefits, and the areas of administrative hearings and appeals.
Coverage of labor and employment law has been substantially revised and reorganized by the authors to make it even more useful for the practitioner. Workers' comp forms have been reviewed and updated, and new forms relating to labor and employment practice have been added.
The 2017-2018 release is current through the 2017 legislative session.
