Public Sector Employment: Cases and Materials

Ann C. Hodges, University of Richmond

Co-authored with Martin H. Malin & Joseph E. Slater.


This law school casebook includes materials dealing with constitutional rights of public employees, civil service, tenure and other laws specific to public employees, as well as public employee collective bargaining statutes and/or significant unionization among public employees. It emphasizes how the law governing the public sector workplace differs from the private sector. The book facilitates classroom examination of different policies, issues, and concerns that arise when government is the employer. Laws from a variety of states, as well as the federal government, enables the instructor to compare different approaches to matters such as bargaining unit definitions, scope of bargaining, impasse resolution, and grievance arbitration.
