Labour Law's Theory of Justice

Labour Law's Theory of Justice

(p.101) 7 Labour Law's Theory of Justice
The Idea of Labour Law

Brian Langille

Oxford University Press

Labour law does and must have a theory of justice. Without such a theory labour law has no account of the scope of its application or the point of its normative content. Scope and content are answerable to labour law's idea of justice and a change in our thinking about either entails a necessary rethinking of the other. Because labour law's world is changing labour law will have a new theory of justice. This chapter outlines briefly what such a theory might look like. It also discusses two line of resistance to this way of thinking.
