Of interest to anyone who wishes to understand more about employee rights and the revolutionizing of employment models, Employment and Employee Rights addresses the issue of rights in the workplace from the perspective of both employees and employers. In the process of exploring arguments for guaranteeing rights, the book examines the relational, developmental, and economic bases upon which they are founded. New dimensions of employment are also considered, including a model that incorporates growing workplace diversity, builds upon our understanding of the legal landscape, and expands upon our justifications for recognizing and protecting rights. Employment and Employee Rights defends employee rights as economic value added for employers and companies, and it suggests a model where employees engage in meaningful work, maintain their autonomy, and exercise a level of control over their employment.
