Book Description

September 2009 1847207294 978-1847207296
The economic analysis of labor and employment law is a bold effort to apply economic theory to explain important empirical facts about the regulation of the employment relationship and to provide positive predictions and normative analyses that are useful to policy-makers. This book draws together 24 chapters, by leading scholars in the field, summarizing the important theoretical and empirical work that has been done to date on a wide spectrum of labor and employment law topics including: regulating employment contracts, unions, collective bargaining, minimum wages, health insurance, executive pay, workers' compensation, unemployment, occupational health and safety, discrimination, needs of families, training and slave labor, to name but a few. This volume is one of the first in a series on specific topics within law and economics which builds upon, updates and replaces Elgar's very popular "Encyclopedia of Law and Economics". It is designed as an essential starting point for academics and policy makers who are interested in these topics.

Editorial Reviews

Review

'This is a welcome and invaluable desktop companion for scholars, teachers, lawyers and policy-makers. Chapters by leading scholars from both law and economics cover an expansive array of topics on the regulation of work through the lens of economic analysis, concisely explaining theoretical foundations as well as identifying cutting-edge intellectual controversies. I recommend it most highly.' - Gillian Lester, UC Berkeley School of Law, US
