Abstract

This paper considers the meaning and development in a historical perspective of what Americans mean by labour law. The author highlights the fact that employment law in the United States consists of a patchwork of state regulation with a variegated federal overlay. He also discusses the development of the restatement tradition in the United States and examines the course and the current status of the Restatement of Employment Law project promoted by the American Law Institute (ALI), taking account of the fact that the character of employment has changed radically in the past two decades, and has yet to reach anything like stasis
