Challenging the Legal Boundaries of Work Regulation

Edited by: Shae McCrystal, Kamala Sankaran, Judy Fudge

Focusing on paid work that blurs traditional legal boundaries and the challenge this poses to traditional forms of labor regulation, this collection of original case studies illustrates the wide range of different forms of regulation designed to provide decent work. The case studies cover a diversity of workers from across developed and developing countries, the formal and informal economies, and public and private work spaces. Each case study deals with the failings of traditional labor law, and several explore different forms of regulatory techniques to protect workers, such as commercial law, corporate codes of conduct, or supply chain regulation. The book is a useful and interesting study for all those interested in labor law. (Series: Onati International Series in Law and Society)
