The rights of the employee and the themes of employee ownership and participation have been central, recurring themes as the body of Catholic Social Thought has developed. There is now a unified corpus of official Catholic teaching that focuses the resources of moral theology and natural law theory on the important social issues of the day such as this. The description and explanation of the essential elements of Catholic Social Thought and its relationship to these themes helps the reader think about the place of the corporation in the economy and whether British and European corporate governance and labour law do what they should to put the employee at the centre of corporate governance.

  • Explains the variety of meanings of employee participation, demonstrating how it applies to a range of interlocking levels of management and governance
  • Detailed explanation of an ethical framework that can be used to think about legal, regulatory, governance and managerial questions offers a way of thinking that can complement and fill out purely economic approaches
  • Invites readers, regardless of their religious beliefs, to consider the possibility that moral theology can make a contribution to multi-disciplinary debate about social and economic issues
