Kenneth M. Piper Lecture

"Religion and the Workplace"

11:30 am - 1:00 pm
1.5 MCLE hours

On Tuesday, March 27, Chicago-Kent’s Institute for Law and the Workplace will present the 29th annual Kenneth M. Piper Lecture, “Religion and the Workplace”, from 11:30-1:00pm, in the auditorium.

Lecturer:
Thomas C. Kohler
, Concurrent Professor of Law and Philosophy

Commentators:
Kim Bobo, Executive Director, Interfaith Worker Justice
Robert D. Campbell, Senior Vice President of Human Resources, NiSource Inc.

Professor Kohler will outline the strong link between religion and current U.S. labor and employment law. He will discuss how the National Labor Relations Act and the Fair Labor Standards Act have deep roots in Catholic social thought and the Protestant social gospel movement, and that Title VII would have been unthinkable without the involvement of African-American Protestant churches. Professor Kohler will suggest that any new employment regulatory regime will have to take religious insights into account, since they provide an alternative to the understanding of the human person that informs dominant forms of ordering. He will discuss why, without its religious roots, law designed to protect workers has become increasingly irrelevant. The commentary by Kim Bobo and Robert Campbell will include insights on the practical implications of Professor Kohler’s thesis.

All faculty, students, and staff are invited to attend.
