About this Book

Employment and Employee Rights addresses the issue of rights in the workplace. Although much of the literature in this field focuses on employee rights, this volume considers the issue from the perspective of both employees and employers.



  • Considers the rights of both employees and employers.
  • Discusses the moral and legal landscape and traditional assumptions about right in employment.
  • Investigates arguments for guaranteeing rights, particularly for employees, which are derived from relational, developmental, and economic bases.
  • Explores new dimensions of employment 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.
