Rights in the workplace: A Nozickian argument [Book Review]

Journal of Business Ethics 8 (12):951 - 954 (1989)

There is a growing literature that attempts to define the substantive rights of employees in the workplace, a.k.a. the duties of employers toward their employees. Following Nozick, this article argues that — so long as there is a competitive labor market — to set up a class of moral rights in the workplace invades workers' rights to freely choose the terms and conditions of employment they judge best.
