A Primer: The Supreme Court Labor and Employment Docket

Corporate Counsel

Stuart Gerson, Member of the Firm in the Litigation and Health Care & Life Sciences practices, in the firm's Washington, DC, and New York offices, authored an article titled “A Primer: The Supreme Court Labor and Employment Docket.”

Following is an excerpt:

Most U.S. Supreme Court observers—particularly those in the general press—have labeled the Court’s current term an uninteresting one. There are relatively few cases on the docket that would appear to be a blockbuster, but employers in particular should not be among these bored observers. Some of the cases spotlighted below were argued last month, and some will come before the justices starting this week. The current docket is heavily weighted toward labor and employment cases that will have significant precedential effect in the workplace of the future.
