"Legislation from the bench."


Judicial activism is the use of one's own agenda, whether political or morale, in the decision process of the courts


They’re people who believe that the Constitution is what they’re to follow, not what they’re to depart from; people who do not believe that legislation from the bench is the responsibility or authority of being on the bench.



Legislative-judicial overlap.  The state senate sits as the court for all impeachments of public officers.

The state assembly initiates impeachments.

The legislature has the power to learn facts upon which legislative choices may depend.  It may hold hearings and subpoena witnesses and documents.  The legislature can investigate the other two branches, generally acting through its committees.  The legislature appoints the state auditor.


Courts usually do not rule on political questions, reserving that task for the legislature.  Nor do the courts normally rule on the propriety, practicality, or wisdom of a

statute.  Courts may only invalidate statutes that violate the constitution.


Executive-judicial overlap.  Executive branch agencies may conduct hearings that resemble judicial proceedings.  Agencies may hold such hearings to determine if certain facts exist, to grant or revoke licenses, to assess penalties, and to perform other executive acts, subject to judicial review, as long as the hearing officer does not exercise judicial powers.



What Is Contract Negotiation?


A contract negotiation is any discussion, either in person or through electronic means, that has as its primary goal to come to a written agreement concerning a business matter.  Such a contract can be for nearly anything, though the term most often applies to labor contracts, or contracts for services that need to be agreed upon before the work is performed.  Often, the contract negotiation handles issues such as cost, timeframe, and whether there are any special considerations to take into account.


Collective bargaining is a process of negotiations between employers and the representatives of a unit of employees aimed at reaching agreements which regulate working conditions.  Collective agreements usually set out wage scales, working hours, training, health and safety, overtime, grievance mechanisms and rights to participate in workplace or company affairs.


The union may negotiate with a single employer (who is typically representing a company's shareholders) or may negotiate with a group of businesses, depending on the country, to reach an industry wide agreement.  A collective agreement functions as a labor contract between an employer and one or more unions.  Collective bargaining consists of the process of negotiation between representatives of a union and employers (generally represented by management, in some countries[which?] by an employers' organization) in respect of the terms and conditions of employment of employees, such as wages, hours of work, working conditions and grievance-procedures, and about the rights and responsibilities of trade unions.  The parties often refer to the result of the negotiation as a collective bargaining agreement (CBA) or as a collective employment agreement (CEA).
