Law professor tackles workplace law, Supreme Court influence in latest book

THE DAILY GAMECOCK, 25 JULY 2017, FEAT. PROF. JOSEPH SEINER

USC law professor Joseph Seiner takes on the Supreme Court’s ways of regulating workers’ rights in his latest book, “The Supreme Court’s New Workplace.”

Seiner taught at Georgetown University Law Center before arriving in Columbia in 2007. A former attorney for the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, his teaching interests include civil procedure and labor law. Published by the Cambridge University Press, “The Supreme Court’s New Workplace,” is his third book on workplace law and his second in 2017.

In “The Supreme Court’s New Workplace,” Seiner analyzes how the composition and procedural law of the Supreme Court will directly affect workplace law. The Court has seen change under the current administration with the death of Justice Antonin Scalia and his succession by Justice Neil Gorsuch, and could see more with potential for retirement for current justices such as 84-year-old Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
