CNST 530 - Personnel Management and Law


Prerequisites: Graduate standing or permission of instructor
Delivery: Delivery: Online
One of the largest cost elements in any construction project is the cost of personnel. The penalties incurred if the letter and the spirit of the current laws affecting personnel management are not observed are potentially devastating to the cost and schedule for any construction project. This course will examine the current requirements and trends for the personnel laws governing the construction industry. Topics include: typical employment contract requirements for management personnel and building trades personnel; the impact of “work rules” on estimating and scheduling; “trade-offs” for modifying various “work rules” and determining the legality of the managers’ ability to modify “work rules”; the economic impacts of “work rules” and “trade-offs”; case studies in labor relations and labor relations effects on bidding and executing construction contracts; salient decisions in labor law from the US Courts system in the last twelve months and how they are likely to affect the construction industry; recent trends in international labor law or labor law in a single foreign country to compare and contrast how the construction industry operating in a foreign environment will be affected.
