Understanding Labor Law

Author: Douglas E. Ray
Publisher: LexisNexis
ISBN: 9781630430146
Release Date: 2014-10-29
Genre: Law

This Understanding treatise examines the multifaceted and complex law of private-sector Labor Law. Because Understanding Labor Law focuses on relations between management and labor in the private sector, it deals primarily with the National Labor Relations Act, as amended, and its interpretation and application by the federal courts and the National Labor Relations Board. The book is organized in a format that is consistent with the organization of most Labor Law courses. At the end of each chapter is a section titled "Chapter Highlights," summarizing some of the major doctrines discussed in the chapter. This eBook features links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.

A Question Of Intent

Author: David Kessler
Publisher: PublicAffairs
ISBN: 9780786731022
Release Date: 2002-03-21
Genre: History

Tobacco companies had been protecting their turf for decades. They had congressmen in their pocket. They had corrupt scientists who made excuses about nicotine, cancer and addiction. They had hordes of lawyers to threaten anyone—inside the industry or out—who posed a problem. They had a whole lot of money to spend. And they were good at getting people to do what they wanted them to do. After all, they had already convinced millions of Americans to take up an addictive, unhealthy, and potentially deadly habit. David Kessler didn't care about all that. In this book he tells for the first time the thrilling detective story of how the underdog FDA—while safeguarding the nation's food, drugs, and blood supply—finally decided to take on one of the world's most powerful opponents, and how it won. Like A Civil Action or And the Band Played On, A Question of Intent weaves together science, law, and fascinating characters to tell an important and often unexpectedly moving story. We follow Kessler's team of investigators as they race to find the clues that will allow the FDA to assert jurisdiction over cigarettes, while the tobacco companies and their lawyers fight back—hard. Full of insider information and drama, told with wit, and animated by its author's moral passion, A Question of Intent reads like a Grisham thriller, with one exception—everything in it is true.

Labor Law

ISBN: 1628101512
Release Date: 2016-07-19
Genre:

The Sixteenth Edition makes a number of significant changes to its predecessor, reflecting the evolution of the law relating to employers, employees, and unions in a dynamic economy. This edition includes new decisions of the National Labor Relations Board appointed by President Obama, which has departed in important ways from the approach of the Board under the prior administration. Moreover, the Board is now actively confronting the role of labor law in the contemporary workplace, addressing emergent issues such as protections for employee electronic communications and social media interactions, accountability for employers in "fissured" enterprises, and potential limitations on other employer restrictions on collective activity. The book also contains judicial decisions addressing these developments as well as reactions in Congress and elsewhere, evincing the growing polarization over the role of labor unions in society. This edition supplies a comprehensive revision in light of major legal shifts occurring from 2013 through 2015, notably the new NLRB representation election rules Purple Communications, adopting new rules on employee use of employer email for concerted activity Murphy Oil, reiterating D.F. Horton, holding that the waiver of the capacity to participate in a group arbitration of an employment law claim violates of the Labor Act, with more detailed consideration of the judicial treatment of that question under the Norris-LaGuardia Act as well Fedex Home Delivery and more on the distinction between employees and independent contractors Browning-Ferris, McDonald's and more on joint employer status and the situations of franchisors Babcock & Wilcox, announcing new arbitration deferral rules, and the General Counsel's advisory explication of them employer rules affecting § 7 rights - against "gossip," disclosing confidential information, or "threatening behavior" - and especially on the use of recording and photographic devices and social media and much more. Discussion problems and exercises throughout the text offer students the opportunity to engage with this new material, illustrating how exciting and challenging the study of labor law is today.

Analyzing Evolutionary Algorithms

Author: Thomas Jansen
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9783642173394
Release Date: 2013-01-24
Genre: Computers

Evolutionary algorithms is a class of randomized heuristics inspired by natural evolution. They are applied in many different contexts, in particular in optimization, and analysis of such algorithms has seen tremendous advances in recent years. In this book the author provides an introduction to the methods used to analyze evolutionary algorithms and other randomized search heuristics. He starts with an algorithmic and modular perspective and gives guidelines for the design of evolutionary algorithms. He then places the approach in the broader research context with a chapter on theoretical perspectives. By adopting a complexity-theoretical perspective, he derives general limitations for black-box optimization, yielding lower bounds on the performance of evolutionary algorithms, and then develops general methods for deriving upper and lower bounds step by step. This main part is followed by a chapter covering practical applications of these methods. The notational and mathematical basics are covered in an appendix, the results presented are derived in detail, and each chapter ends with detailed comments and pointers to further reading. So the book is a useful reference for both graduate students and researchers engaged with the theoretical analysis of such algorithms.

Numerical Methods for Eulerian and Lagrangian Conservation Laws

Author: Bruno Després
Publisher: Birkhäuser
ISBN: 9783319503554
Release Date: 2017-08-08
Genre: Mathematics

This book focuses on the interplay between Eulerian and Lagrangian conservation laws for systems that admit physical motivation and originate from continuum mechanics. Ultimately, it highlights what is specific to and beneficial in the Lagrangian approach and its numerical methods. The two first chapters present a selection of well-known features of conservation laws and prepare readers for the subsequent chapters, which are dedicated to the analysis and discretization of Lagrangian systems. The text is at the frontier of applied mathematics and scientific computing and appeals to students and researchers interested in Lagrangian-based computational fluid dynamics. It also serves as an introduction to the recent corner-based Lagrangian finite volume techniques.
