Civil Liberties in the Shadow of Managerial Prerogative

Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses civil liberties and the fact that there is no adequate protection of civil liberties against the economic power that is exercised by employers. Part of the discussion presented in this chapter is a critical examination of a public-private distinction, because it appears to provide the ideological foundation stone that accounts for the two weaknesses of the law of unfair dismissal that is constantly described throughout this chapter.

Keywords: civil liberties; economic power; employers; protection
