Is It Time to Revisit Federal Labor Law Preemption? 

Wednesday, November 29, 2017 in Greenberg Lounge, Vanderbilt Hall, NYU School of Law

Is it time to allow more local innovation in labor law by re-visiting the broad pre-emption of federal labor law? What should such allowances be and how should they be effected? Is a new law required or can necessary changes be made by court interpretation? A distinguished panel of both employee and employer representatives considers these questions and evaluates the likelihood of reform, legislative, or judicial.
