Labor Law, Special Problems: Work Regulation and Technology - LAW 759

2 Hours

This seminar examines the emerging challenges associated with regulating work in the new economy, focusing particularly on app-based work. The course will begin with fundamental questions about who is (and who should be) an employee or an employer. It will then explore efforts to guarantee minimum work standards through regulatory interventions or private ordering. The course will ask students to think creatively about problems from across the work law spectrum, such as whether and how to facilitate workers’ collective action; how to guarantee a minimum wage; and how to enforce non-discrimination laws and norms.
