The Ominous Employee Free Choice Act


Richard A. Epstein

Abstract:     
The proposed Employee Free Choice Act - better known as the 'Card Check' Act - represents a remarkable departure from U.S. labor law. The legislation does not include a number of features contained in previous labor laws that the Supreme Court has ruled were necessary for those laws to be constitutional. Hence, even under the legal philosophy that has governed U.S. labor law since the New Deal, the EFCA is a constitutional pariah.
