Rarely have the international human rights movement, non-governmental organizations, human rights scholars or even labour organizations and advocates given attention to worker rights as human rights. James A. Gross finds, however, that employers, not just governments, have the power to violate workers' rights. This book aims to provide new perspective on the assessment of US labour relations law by using human rights principles as standards for judgement. The authors also present recommendations for what should and can be done to bring US labour law into conformity with international human rights standards. This volume constitutes a long overdue beginning toward the promotion and protection of worker rights as human rights in the United States.
