Abstract

What are the legal implications for personnel management of governmental privatization through incorporation of a subsidiary or related entity to perform public functions? The manner in which a governmental entity establishes or interacts with a private corporation performing public services can be crucial to answering that question. Entanglement between government and private corporations can lead a court to apply certain personnel laws and rights that would otherwise not apply in the private context. Using various court cases as examples, this legal brief highlights some issues worthy of further consideration.
