Employment-at-will, employee rights, and future directions for employment
Radin and Werhane, the latter of whom is known for her range of writings on the subject of employee rights, trace these rights to John Locke, the seventeenth century philosopher, and his defense of the inalienability of the basic human rights to life, liberty, work and ownership of property. They summarize a defense of employee rights as derived from a Lockean point of view, including rights to free speech, to due process and to fair treatment as well as to safety in the workplace and to fair wages.Original publication: Radin, T.J. & Werhane, P.H. 2003, "Employment-at-Will, Employee Rights, and Future Directions for Employment" Business Ethics Quarterly, vol. 13, no. 2, pp. 113–130. ©2003 Reprinted with permission.
