Restatement of Employment Law?

The ALI is gearing up to draft an employment law restatement. It sounds like it could be somewhat interesting at first glance, but once you see what's in it, it sounds silly.

The right way to do something like that would be an exhaustive 50 state project, and could be a useful tool. I know in my practice, I compare federal and state law often, but I just don't have much reason to see what they're doing in, say, Kentucky on overtime (if anything). After a while, I think you'd start to find that a few positions would evolve and could be great arguments to use, especially if you're in appellate practice.

But, what's coming doesn't sound very good. Maybe as a resource for a law school textbook, but not much else.
