Though it barely registers in public political discussions, labor exploitation is a substantial and growing problem worldwide. This innovative book looks at the issue through the lens of social harm, analyzing the effects of labor exploitation in different contexts, critiquing existing approaches to the study of workplace exploitation, abuse, and forced labor, and showing the potential for using a social harm–focused approach to attempt to effect political and social change in this area. Mapping out a new subdiscipline, Sam Scott aims to shift the power from employers to workers and reduce labor exploitation and work-based harm across the globe.
Review Quotes
Criminal Law and Criminal Justice Books
Labour Exploitation and Work-Based Harm helps to reshape some common (mis)understandings of labour exploitation, and more broadly, harm in the workplace. It is a wide-ranging yet informative text for those who are interested in key features, processes and oversight of these areas. The themes explored in this book will be important reference points in future research across a range of disciplines, especially given the increasing emphasis that researchers, policy makers and the public are placing on ‘modern slavery’ and labour exploitation.”
