Reasonable Accommodation in the Modern Workplace: Potential and Limits of the Integrative Logics of Labour Law, is the first study to analyse, on a global scale, how employment discrimination law gives shape to an accommodated workplace in three main areas of interest: age, disability, and religion/belief. Increasingly, the modern workplace faces challenges of diversity and employability, and there is a need to match workforce diversity, or workers’ own characteristics and choices, with employers’ organizational and business requirements. In this context, the notion of reasonable accommodation inevitably arises. Concepts such as ‘adaptability’ and ‘employability’ not only require workers to adapt to new labour market circumstances, but they are also directed towards employers’ duties to accommodate work and the workplace to the worker’s situation.
This book is a compilation of articles, which were originally presented as papers at the 2015 meeting of the International Association of Labour Law Journals hosted by the Institute for Labour Law of the University of Leuven.
What’s in this book:
Issues and topics covered include the following:
The book essentially makes clear that reasonable accommodation cannot be narrowed down to a formal anti-discrimination perspective, but that it requires an integrative logic that can grow in a broader labour law context.<
How will this help you:
As a compelling analysis of whether the idea of reasonable accommodation is winning ground in labour law in today’s world, this book is of great value. Labour and employment lawyers and judges, as well as corporate counsel and academics, who work with both actual law and powerful legal theory on accommodation, benefit from the actual, up-to-date information and insight provided from globally representative accommodation trends. As a result, the book helps to meet workplace challenges confidently involving accommodations for age, disability, or religion/belief.
