Who We Are

The committee is concerned with developments in the law governing the rights and responsibilities of individual workers and their employers in the workplace, and the resolution of disputes between individual employees and employers. Areas of focus include: wrongful termination claims; employee privacy and other employment-based torts; covenants not to compete and the duty to preserve trade secrets; the expanding contingent workforce and the effects of corporate restructuring and worker dislocation; health and disability leaves; emerging statutory rights; the impact of technology and multinational employers on employment law; alternate dispute resolution mechanisms; class actions; and ERISA litigation. The committee is responsible for the publication of four state-by-state surveys with annual supplements: Covenants Not to Compete: A State by State Survey, Employee Duty of Loyalty: A State-by-State Survey, Tortious Interference in the Employment Context: a State-by-State Survey, Trade Secrets: A State-by-State Survey, and Employment at Will: A State-by-State Survey (a reworking of Employment Termination: Rights & Remedies).
