Meeting the Demands of Workers into the Twenty-First Century: The Future of Labor and Employment Law

20 Pages Posted: 6 May 2005

Abstract

In this essay, Professor Dau-Schmidt undertakes a comparative institutional analysis of the four basic means of regulating the employment relationship: individual bargaining, collective bargaining, protective legislation and the common law. He briefly examines the history of America's reliance first on the common law and individual bargaining and later on collective bargaining and protective legislation to meet the demands of workers. Professor Dau-Schmidt also discusses the probable future implementation of these institutions in governing the employment relationship in the Twenty-First Century.

Keywords: Labor law, employment law, individual bargaining, collective bargaining, regulation
