The struggle for equal treatment of women in the workplace has a long and complicated history. Bringing together legal rulings and commentary, this three-volume collection documents the development of legal protection for women in the workplace. The comprehensive coverage encompasses the major legal and constitutional issues, including debates over minimum wage legislation, issues of gender equality versus gender difference, maternity leave, health hazards in the workplace for pregnant women, and other vital topics. This set will become an essential guide for students and scholars, as well as for general readers.
