With the forces of globalization as a backdrop, this pathbreaking casebook develops labor and employment law in the context of the national laws of nine countries important to the global economy -- U.S., Canada, Mexico, U.K., Germany, France, China, Japan and India. National materials are contextualized by coverage of international labor standards promulgated by the International Labor Organization, as well as the principles that emerge from two regional trade arrangements -- the North American Free Trade Agreement and the European Union -- and TNC's self-regulatory efforts. Instructor resources include an extensive teachers' manual, powerpoint slides, and a website providing updates in this broad and fast-moving subject.
