AIMS & SCOPE

The Journal of Workplace Rights is dedicated to the proposition that human rights should not be compromised by employers. It uses an expansive definition of human rights, based on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as passed by the United Nations in 1948. A list of proposed topics is provided below. The Journal invites prospective authors to submit papers that are completely unrelated to the below topics as long as their focus is on workplace rights.

"We see this Journal as a timely intervention in the field of human rights in the workplace. Too often in liberal democracies human rights are curtailed at the factory gate or the office door as the law concedes the so-called business case as a justifiable limitation on such rights.

Albert and Jean Mills, St. Mary's University (Canada)

"To some academics value judgments and good quality research are incompatible. The contents of this Journal seek to show just how wrong is such a view."
Phil Beaumont, University of Glasgow
