The LERA Program Committee has issued a call to all members, employers/management, union members/labor, attorneys, neutrals, researchers, for session and paper proposals for stimulating, creative, and controversial symposia, workshops, panel discussions, and more, related to this year’s theme as well as other proposals that deal with topics of current interest and the mission of the Labor and Employment Relations Association (LERA). Academics submitting proposals should make every effort to include representatives from backgrounds in non-university contexts. Representatives from government agencies and non-profits are encouraged to submit workshop proposals that address practical skills and mastery of tasks relating to regulatory oversight and enforcement.
Employment relations relevant topics that address the conference theme of contingent work, temporary and part time work, contracting, and more are especially encouraged.
For academic proposals, LERA encourages submissions from the perspectives of multiple disciplines – including but not limited to economics, sociology, political science, labor and employment law, industrial relations, history, urban planning, geography, public policy and human resource studies – and the perspectives of multiple stakeholders, including investors, managers, workers and unions.
The LERA 68th Annual Meeting will be held in conjunction with the 2016 Industry Studies Association Conference, May 24-26, both to take place at the Millennium Hotel in Minneapolis. Our two meetings will overlap on Thursday, May 26, and will feature joint sessions and joint special events.
