Professor Ruben Garcia Writes Article for Hamilton and Griffin on Rights Blog

http://law.unlv.edu/faculty/ruben-garcia.htmlRuben J. Garcia is a Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

On July 1, he wrote an article for the Hamilton and Griffin on Rights blog titled, "Harris v. Quinn: The Supreme Court Further Marginalizes Public Employees."

In the article, he wrote, "A political path remains after Harris v. Quinn that States can follow to ensure home healthcare worker bargaining arrangements pass constitutional muster. Nonetheless, as many of these workers are among the most politically vulnerable in society – low-wage earners, women, people of color and noncitizens – they will lack the political power to easily change legislation for their benefit and the benefit of their clients or customers, who are alone, disabled, elderly and ill. In Harris v. Quinn, the Supreme Court has once again marginalized these employees, and the people for whom they work."

A recognized expert in the field of labor and employment law, Professor Garcia teaches Labor Law, Employment Law, Constitutional Law, and Professional Responsibility at the Boyd School of Law. He has been quoted in the Los Angeles Times, the Wall Street Journal, and the Las Vegas Review-Journal, among others, and has appeared on national and local radio and television programs.
