Labor & Employment Relations Association Meeting Announcement and Call

LERA (Labor & Employment Relations Association) 2014 Meeting in conjunction with ASSA/AEA
Jan. 3-5, 2014, Philadelphia, PA

“Growing Good Jobs and Connecting Workers to Them: Challenges and Opportunities for Theory and Action”

Eileen Appelbaum, LERA Program Chair and Past President; 
William Rodgers, LERA Program Co-Chair

Deadline: March 3, 2013

The LERA Program Committee has issued a call for symposia proposals and papers for stimulating, creative, and controversial symposia related to this theme as well as other proposals that deal with topics of current interest and the mission of the Labor and Employment Relations Association (LERA).

The LERA is filling slots for 27 academic symposia at the ASSA/AEA meetings in 2014, and the opportunities have never been better for academics and researchers. We especially encourage younger academics, or researchers engaged in applied research, or those who historically may not be represented at the ASSA/AEA meetings, to submit papers and proposals.

Submissions from the perspectives of multiple disciplines – including but not limited to economics, sociology, political science, labor and employment law, industrial relations, and human resource studies – and the perspectives of multiple stakeholders, including investors, managers, workers and unions, are encouraged.

Find complete information and submit a proposal or paper online at the LERA website:

Proposals must be submitted or reach the LERA Office no later than March 3, 2013. Contact if you have any questions.
