I am a full professor and the Elias Lieberman Chair in Labour Law at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. My book A Purposive Approach to Labour Law was published by Oxford University Press in 2016 (paperback edition 2018). I have also co-edited two books with Brian Langille, Boundaries and Frontiers of Labour Law (Hart, 2006) and The Idea of Labour Law (Oxford UP, 2011), and have published dozens of articles in peer-review journals, including in the Oxford Journal of Legal Studies, Modern Law Review, the University of Toronto Law Journal, Law & Social Inquiry, McGill Law Journal, Industrial Law Journal, and the Comparative Labour Law & Policy Journal. I am currently in the process of editing, with Brian Langille and Gillian Lester, the Oxford Handbook of the Law of Work.
My work has been cited (and relied upon) by the Supreme Courts of three different countries: the UK (in the important Uber case); Canada (in three different cases); and Israel (multiple times).
I was the founding Chair of the Labour Law Research Network (LLRN), from 2011 through 2015, and continued to serve on its Steering Committee until 2017. I have been the Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Comparative Labour Law and Industrial Relations from 2015 through 2020, and have previously served as editor of several Hebrew journals: Mishpat Umimshal – law and government, Hukim –Legislation (founding editor), and Labour, Society and Law (co-editor).
Among my duties at the Faculty of Law, I am the coordinator of the Labour Law and Social Security Forum. I have previously served as Vice-Dean of the Faculty, as the Academic Director of the Clinical Legal Education Center, as the Director of the Sacher Institute for Legislative Research and Comparative Law, and as Chair of Graduate Studies. I have also served as Chair of the Hebrew University Faculty Union.
I studied at Tel-Aviv University (LLB 1996) and the University of Toronto (LLM 1998, SJD 2002). Before joining the Hebrew University, I was a faculty member at the University of Haifa for several years.
