As labor law protections grow weaker and employers gain more power in the workplace, Professor Jean-Christian Vinel offers a provocative new analysis of this shift. He shows how decades of legal and political struggle over what it means to be an “employee” has disempowered workers and he suggests how we can reverse this injustice.

Please join us on Friday, November 8th at 4:00 PM in Healy 105 for a book discussion featuring Jean-Christian Vinel, Professor of History at Universite Paris-Diderot and author of The Employee: A Political History (new window). Melvyn Dubofsky, Emeritus Distinguished Professor of History at the State University of New York at Binghamton, will offer comments.
