Professor William R. Corbett, the Frank L. Maraist Professor of Law and member of the law faculty since 1991, has co-authored the first English-language international and comparative employment law casebook, The Global Workplace: International and Comparative Employment Law – Cases and Materials.
The new casebook covers employment laws of the U.S., Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, China, Japan, and India. The book examines the variety of laws governing issues such as individual and collective employment, antidiscrimination, privacy, and dispute resolution systems. The laws of individual companies are discussed against the backdrop of globalization and how they relate to the principles of regional trade agreements such as the North American Free Trade Agreement, the laws of the European Union and international labor standards set forth by the International Labor Organization.
The book is published by Cambridge University Press and is the joint effort of Corbett; Roger Blanpain, University of Tilburg, the Netherlands and Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium; Susan Sisom-Rapp, Thomas Jefferson School of Law; Hilary K. Josephs, Syracuse University College of Law; and Michael J. Zimmer, Seton Hall University School of Law.
