Labour Law and Policy

The law plays a major role in shaping almost every aspect of work, from the workers’ basic duties on the job, through their right to organize, to how and when unions are allowed to bargain and go on strike. But how does the law frame these workplace issues? What interests - the workers, the employers, the public - does the law try to balance, and which side does it favour?
