In this episode, I discuss the Supreme Court’s labor and employment law cases for the 2020-2021 term. Among the cases discussed are Cedar Point Nursery v. Hassid, which concerned access for unions to agricultural employers in California. The Court found that granting unions access for up to 3 hours per day for 120 days per year was a taking and the employers should have been compensated. I discuss what this case may indicate for other labor law cases in the future.

The episode also discusses California v. Texas, which concerns the Affordable Care Act; Henry Schein Inc. v. Archer and White Sales Inc., which deals with the enforceability of arbitration agreements; Fulton v. City of Philadelphia, which demonstrates the Court’s willingness to enforce religious rights and religious liberty; National Collegiate Athletic Association v. Alston, where the court held that the NCAA’s prohibition on education related benefits (e.g., scholarships) for college athletes violates antitrust laws and questioned the other compensation structures in college athletics; Tanzin v. Tanvir, another case where the court upheld religious liberty; TransUnion LLC v. Ramirez, a case concerning standing for class members in a class action; and Van Buren v. United States, which concerns individuals that exceed their access privileges on computers and will have implications for employers that try to protect their trade secrets.
