Cornell Academic Symposium — 11/9/12
As part of the department's centennial observance, Cornell University's Industrial & Labor Relations Review - a top-ranked scholarly journal - circulated a call for papers focused on improving the quality of workplaces that the department regulates. Throughout 2012, the ILRR coordinated a peer review process to fine tune the papers for publication, and the papers will be published next year. On Nov. 9, the ILRR - in partnership with the department - assembled and hosted a symposium at the Frances Perkins Building in Washington, D.C. The authors of the soon-to-be-published papers were joined by a number of distinguished scholars and experts to discuss the department's worker protection strategies, regulatory activities and other topics.
