The Center for Labor and Employment Law was created in 1996 to establish a nonpartisan forum for the debate and study of the policy and legal issues involving the employment relationship. The Center has three major objectives:

  1. To promote workplace efficiency and productivity, while at the same time recognizing the need for justice and safety in the workplace and respecting the dignity of work and employees
  2. To promote independent, nonpartisan research that would improve understanding of employment issues generally, with particular emphasis on the connections between human resources decisions and organizational performance
  3. To provide a forum for bringing together leaders from unions, employees and companies, as well as representatives of plaintiff and defense perspectives, for informal discussions exploring new frameworks for labor-management relations, workplace justice, fair and efficient resolution of employment disputes and representation in the workplace
