Restatement of Employment Law


"The purposes of employment law . . . are to set out the rights and duties of the parties to the employment relationship." Introductory Note (b) Terminology to Chapter 1 of Restatement of Employment Law, at 1 (Am. Law Inst. 2015).

Jenkins has access to the Restatement of the Law, Employment Law in print, on the library's Westlaw computers, and on the member database HeinOnline. Use this guide to find out more about this Restatement and how to access it.

The first series of the Restatement of Employment Law was published in 2015. The supplement to the first series includes all case citations.

Explanation of series numbering: In 2014 ALI devised a new system for numbering series of Restatements. ALI is no longer grouping series by publication date. Instead, all new Restatement subjects will begin as the first series of that subject. Subsequent versions will be labeled as the second series, third series, etc. Prior completed Restatement projects will retain their numbered status. Current and future projects relating to subjects already completed will be numbered by the next sequential series. For more information regarding this change, see the Fall/Winter 2014 issue of The ALI Reporter.

For more information about the different Restatement series, see the About the Restatements Series & Drafting page of this guide.
