Labor and the Constitution: Labor and Property, Privacy, Discrimination and International Relations
Routledge, 2014 M03 14 - 385 pages
First published in 1999. This ongoing series, Controversies in Constitutional Law, provides teachers, scholars, and students convenient access to the debates and scholarly literature surrounding major questions of constitutional law. In the structure of government in the United States the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and other Amendments - especially the Fourteenth Amendment - are the primary referential points to locate, protect, and enhance our fundamental political freedoms. The intersections between Labor Law and Constitutional Law occasionally synergize, but perhaps more often obviate the tensions among, several fundamental freedoms. This first volume will situate and examine the intersections among labor, religion, and speech, the two latter among our most fundamental First Amendment rights.
