Clear Statement Rules And The Integrity Of Labor Arbitration, Stephen F. Ross, Roy Eisenhardt Jan 2017

Clear Statement Rules And The Integrity Of Labor Arbitration, Stephen F. Ross, Roy Eisenhardt

Journal Articles

Under the common law, employment contracts are submitted to civil courts to resolve disputes over interpretation, breach, and remedies. As an alternative, parties in labor contexts can agree to resolution by an impartial arbitrator, whose decision is reviewed deferentially by judges. Where employees are subject to rules of a private association, they are often contractually obligated to submit their claims to an internal association officer or committee; the common law provides for judicial review more limited than a civil contract but more searching than is the case for an impartial labor arbitrator. Recently, the National Football League and its players ...

Do You Believe He Can Fly? Royce White And Reasonable Accommodations Under The Americans With Disabilities Act For Nba Players With Anxiety Disorder And Fear Of Flying, Michael A. Mccann Apr 2014

Do You Believe He Can Fly? Royce White And Reasonable Accommodations Under The Americans With Disabilities Act For Nba Players With Anxiety Disorder And Fear Of Flying, Michael A. Mccann

Pepperdine Law Review

This Article examines the legal ramifications of Royce White, a basketball player with general anxiety disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder, playing in the NBA. White's conditions cause him to have a fear of flying, thus making it difficult to play in the NBA. This subject is without precedent in sports law and, because of the unique aspects of an NBA playing career, lacks clear analogy to other employment circumstances. This dispute also illuminates broader legal and policy issues in the relationship between employment and mental illness. This Article argues that White would likely fail in a lawsuit against an ...

Lessons From The Nba Lockout: Union Democracy, Public Support, And The Folly Of The National Basketball Players Association, Matthew Parlow Jan 2014

Lessons From The Nba Lockout: Union Democracy, Public Support, And The Folly Of The National Basketball Players Association, Matthew Parlow

Oklahoma Law Review

By most accounts, the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA)—the union representing the players in the NBA—conceded a significant amount of money and other contractual terms in the new ten year collective bargaining agreement (2011 Agreement) that ended the 2011 NBA lockout. Player concessions were predictable because the NBA’s economic structure desperately needed an overhaul. The magnitude of such concessions, however, was startling. The substantial changes in the division of basketball-related income, contract lengths and amounts, salary cap provisions, and revenue sharing rendered the NBA lockout—and the resulting 2011 Agreement—a near-complete victory for the owners. Several ...

The Final Cut: How Sag's Failed Negotiations With Talent Agents Left The Contractual Rights Of Rank-And-File Actors On The Cutting Room Floor, Kelli Shope

Journal of the National Association of Administrative Law Judiciary

The following article will explore the impact SAG, talent agents, and lawmakers each have on the contractual rights of rank-and-file actors in light of the termination of Rule 16(g). Section II discusses actors' prior contractual rights under the collective bargaining agreement and how failed negotiations with talent agents left actors vulnerable to unfair contracts. Section III explores the new standard agency contract utilized by agents and the resulting legal implications for actors. Section IV details and evaluates the substance of the TAA, one of the few remaining legal protections for actors. Section V exposes the shortcomings of the TAA ...


Nearly A Century In Reserve: Organized Baseball: Collective Bargaining And The Antitrust Exemption Enter The 80'S, Nancy Jean Meissner Feb 2013

Nearly A Century In Reserve: Organized Baseball: Collective Bargaining And The Antitrust Exemption Enter The 80'S, Nancy Jean Meissner

Pepperdine Law Review

In her comment, the author fashions a compelling argument for congressional elimination of baseball's exemption from federal antitrust laws. After noting that the exemption had been formulated in 1922 by the Supreme Court, the author explains that it has been abused by baseball club owners to create a virtual monopoly over ballplayers through the reserve system. Although the reserve system's control was somewhat diluted in 1976, with the advent of free agency and collective bargaining, club owners are currently negotiating for mandatory compensation for the loss of free agents. The resultant threat of a player's strike has ...

Collective Bargaining Agreements In Professional Sports: The Proper Forum For Establishing Performance-Enhancing Drug Testing Policies, David M. Washutka Feb 2012

Collective Bargaining Agreements In Professional Sports: The Proper Forum For Establishing Performance-Enhancing Drug Testing Policies, David M. Washutka

Pepperdine Dispute Resolution Law Journal

The intrusive nature of drug testing implicates the concern over a person's right to privacy. Currently, Congress has proposed legislation which would establish minimum drug testing requirements in professional sports. This legislation is a reaction to suspicions and investigations surrounding Major League Baseball players and the use of performance enhancing drugs. Federally mandated drug testing would raise constitutional issues regarding the players' rights against mandatory drug testing. These concerns could be avoided if drug testing policies are implemented through a collective bargaining agreement, negotiated and agreed upon between the leagues and their players associations. Thus, as previously asserted, collective ...
