Workplace Flexibility and Workplace Fairness

The workplace is getting some attention these days.  According to Georgetown Law's Workplace Flexibility 2010 program, the definition (from the Sloan National Initiative) is:

  • The ability to have flexibility in the scheduling of hours;
  • The ability to have flexibility in the number of hours worked;
  • The ability to have career flexibility with multiple points for entry, exit and reentry into the workforce; and
  • The ability to address unexpected and ongoing personal and family needs.

Georgetown's program (headed by Chai Feldblum and Katie Corrigan) includes a helpful webpage listing all the laws impacting workplace flexibility.  They also have a page with a ton of great workplace flexibility links

Personally, the focus on multiple points of entry and exit seems highly relevant to the poor who often needlessly suffer lasting career effects currently from early mistakes. 

The American Constitution Society's "A Fresh Start for a New Administration: Reforming Law and Justice Policies," consisting of a couple of events and connected papers includes three on workplace fairness:
