The NYU Center for Labor and Employment Law is pleased to invite you to attend the NYU 68th Annual Conference on Labor, held at NYU School of Law on Thursday-Friday, June 4-5, 2015. The 2015 Conference explores the central issues of labor and employment law – Who is an employee? and Who is the employer?  The NLRB General Counsel’s complaints against McDonald’s raise the question of when are firms “joint employers” of  the same group of workers, which also arises under the civil rights law.  Other cutting-edge issues include: When can companies classify service providers as independent contractors?  In view of the Northwestern Univ. case, when must student athletes be treated as employees?  When must owners like partners be classified as employees?  Can individuals work without pay as interns or volunteers?  What new forms of worker organization are cropping up?  What is the “raise the minimum wage” campaign about?  How are these issues treated abroad? Speaker include:
