Workplace Justice provides an in-depth analysis of the rules and procedures governing the obligations of employment—or acceptable and unacceptable employee behaviors—in ten industrialized countries: Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Experts on employment obligation law systematically examine specific scenarios of employee misconduct, addressing the allowable disciplinary consequences of identical behavior in each nation. Wheeler and Rojot analyze the results of each scenario to produce broad conclusions about workplace justice systems, pointing out differences and similarities in the substantive rules on termination and discipline where such rules exist. Workplace Justice is a practical guide to the body of rules governing employee discipline and termination across national systems of industrial justice.
