Book Description Work and the Workplace explores the innovative ways in which management, labor organizations, government, and social workers can better respond to the needs of workers, their families, and communities. The authors' discussion provides contemporary illustrations of evidence-based best practices that respond to the modern workplace. The authors analyze the barriers to entry into the workforce; the conflict between work and family obligations; the unsupportive (even, risk-producing) nature of many jobs and settings; and work implications for persons with chronic or acute illnesses.
