Three Important New Updates Now Available! (continued)

The Railway Labor Act, Third Edition, with 2014 Cumulative Supplement

This volume helps characterize the nature of a union–management dispute and identify how to pursue party interests. This complete resource on the structure and case law of the Railway Labor Act (RLA) incorporates the perspectives of management, union, and neutrals into a text comparable to the ABA/BNA treatise The Developing Labor Law: The Board, the Courts, and the National Labor Relations Act in precision, scope, and ease of use.

The 2014 Cumulative Supplement contains citations and discussion of notable judicial, administrative, and legislative developments between July 1, 2012, and June 30, 2013, including appellate court decisions highlighting the deference courts give to arbitration awards; the NMB's new 50 percent showing of interest requirement for merger transactions, adopted in response to the RLA amendments passed as part of the Federal Aviation Administration Modernization and Reform Act of 2012; NMB craft or class determinations; court decisions addressing the scope of self-help under the RLA; and court decisions concerning whether and under what circumstances the RLA may preclude claims based on other federal laws or preempt state law claims.

This treatise is published in cooperation with the Railway and Airline Labor Law Committee.

Workplace Data: Law and Litigation

This treatise provides an overview of legal issues associated with employment-related electronically stored information (ESI), focusing on discovery issues in particular. Written for employment and labor law practitioners, this new treatise offers a comprehensive overview of today's discovery challenges, a detailed statute-by-statute analysis of data retention requirements in federal workplace-related laws, a summary of emerging workplace social media and other technology-related issues and a guide to data protection privacy laws in North America, Europe, Asia and Oceania.

Workplace Data addresses relevant issues such as workplace-related e-discovery; discovery issues associated with ESI from an employment law perspective, including preservation, spoliation, attorney-client privilege, and working with IT professionals; a comprehensive analysis of data retention requirements in federal labor and employment law statutes; privacy and discovery issues associated with social media and devices owned by either the employer or employee; and international workplace-related data protection privacy laws.

This treatise is published in cooperation with the Committee on Technology in the Practice and Workplace.

Tortious Interference in the Employment Context: A State-by-State Survey, Third Edition, with 2013 Cumulative Supplement

This volume examines business-versus-business suits, as well as suits brought by former employees against their former employers. The treatise provides comprehensive coverage of the issues that arise regarding competition in the employment context on a state-by-state basis in a question-and-answer format.

Two main types of actions analyzed in Tortious Interference are: where there is a contract, tortious interference with that contract; and where there is no contract or the contract is unenforceable, tortious interference with commercial relationships or with prospective economic advantage/expectancies. The 2013 Cumulative Supplement contains expanded discussion of preemption, defenses, and damages.

This treatise is published in cooperation with the Committee on Employment Rights and Responsibilities.
