Synopsis


The waves rippling out from the attacks of September 11, 2001 have touched the U.S. workplace profoundly. From policy-driven rationales for discrimination to marked increases in workers’ emotional disorders, the entire fabric of employment in the U.S. bristles with a web of unprecedented legal issues. Dealing with a wide range of these important and troubling matters, this remarkable book offers seventeen insightful evaluations of some of the core relevant concerns, including the following:

  • workplace discrimination in the context of the war on terror;
  • profiling based on nationality;
  • English-only rules; protections provided to immigrant workers;
  • “enemy combatant” designation;
  • electronic information generated about employees;
  • monitoring electronic mail;
  • military leaves of absence;
  • vulnerability to labor strikes in an age of terror;
  • efforts to limit labor’s freedom of association based on security-related arguments;
  • impact of national security concerns on federal government employees;
  • employee assistance programs;
  • mental injuries such as post-traumatic stress disorder;
  • and workers’ stress in the context of federal workplace statutes

As workers, firms, and governments adapt to the new environment of global insecurity, this book will prove invaluable to all professionals engaged in ensuring the economic health of the U.S. workplace. These papers are sure to provide practitioners, agencies, and academics with a clearly outlined starting point for the debates to come.
