NYU Law's Center for Labor and Employment Law hosted the 68th Annual Conference on Labor in recognition of the 80th anniversary of the National Labor Relations Act. Speakers included, among others, Richard Griffin, general counsel of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB); NLRB members Kent Hirozawa '82 and Philip Miscimarra; and David Weil, administrator of the Department of Labor's Wage-Hour Division. The two-day conference focused on the central questions of labor and employment law: Who is an employee? And who is an employer? Lectures and panels at the conference addressed issues including the classification of services providers as independent contractors, whether student athletes must be treated as employees, unpaid interns and volunteers, new forms of worker organization, and the campaign to raise the minimum wage.
