Professor David Millon, the J.B. Stombock Professor of Law, recently published his article, Keeping Hope Alive, 68 Wash. & Lee L. Rev. 369 (2011), in the Washington & Lee Law Review.
The short article is a review and discussion of Micah Jost’s article, Independent Contractors, Employees, and Entrepreneurialism Under the National Labor Relations Act: A Worker-by-Worker Approach, 68 Wash. & Lee L. Rev. 311 (2011). Prof. Millon discusses the main battleground over unions, the legal distinction between “employees” and “independent contractors.” The right to unionize under the National Labor Relations ACT is limited only to employees, but no clear, bright-line definition of employee has emerged. Prof. Millon praises Jost’s article, stating that it “explains this confused area of law clearly and thoroughly.” He then proceeds to agree with Jost’s conclusions and suggestions.
Congratulations again to Micah Jost and to Professor Millon.
