Vulnerable Workers

Press release from: Gower Publishing Ltd

Vulnerable Workers considers the growth of job insecurity, the prevalence of flexible or temporary work, and the emergence of precarious forms of self-employment. It looks at new market economies, where economic development may occur at the expense of workers' lives and health, and the plight of migrant, transient and 'invisible' workers. The contributors also propose responses to the challenges they highlight. The role of employee representatives is examined, together with the potential to enhance worker capability through organisational change.

Gower is recognised as one of the world's leading publishers of specialist business and management books and resources. Our publishing programme covers many of the main business processes and functions and we are continuously developing new titles. Founded in 1967 Gower is an independent, global publisher.
