Property in Work : The Employment Relationship in the Anglo-American Firm Hardback
The notion of property in work has deep historical roots in the common law tradition, but is yet to receive the attention it deserves.
In this timely and thought-provoking book, Wanjiru Njoya contrasts ideas of ownership and property rights in English, American and European labour law, and considers their practical implications.
The author's contention that shared ownership within a stakeholder theory of the firm allows better protection of both shareholders' and employees' interests in the large public corporation, puts employee-participation firmly back on the corporate governance agenda.
The book offers a refreshing new perspective on how a more socially desirable balance between economic flexibility and job security may be achieved.
