The economic analysis of labor and employment law is a bold effort to apply economic theory to explain important empirical facts about the regulation of the employment relationship and to provide positive predictions and normative analyses that are useful to policy-makers. This book draws together 24 chapters, by leading scholars in the field, summarizing the important theoretical and empirical work that has been done to date on a wide spectrum of labor and employment law topics including: regulating employment contracts, unions, collective bargaining, minimum wages, health insurance, executive pay, workers' compensation, unemployment, occupational health and safety, discrimination, needs of families, training and slave labor, to name but a few.This volume is one of the first in a series on specific topics within law and economics which builds upon, updates and replaces Elgar's very popular Encyclopedia of Law and Economics. It is designed as an essential starting point for academics and policy-makers who are interested in these topics.

'This encyclopedic book lives up to its title. An up-to-date handbook of what we know on almost everything interesting and important in labor written by prominent economists, labor relations experts, and legal experts. The opening chapters lay out the intellectual framework linking law and economics in individual and collective employment contracts. Then comes a potpourri of topics from pay to benefits to regulations to discrimination to global labor markets to. . . you name it. Deeper and more complete than any textbook.' -- Richard B. Freeman, Harvard University, US, National Bureau of Economic Research and London School of Economics, UK 'Labor and Employment Law and Economics presents the most recent theoretical and empirical work on a wide variety of labor and employment law issues. Bringing together contributions from first-rate scholars in the field, Dau-Schmidt, Harris and Lobel, have put together a great resource for academics and policy-makers on either side of the Atlantic who are interested in these important issues.' -- John J. Donohue III, Yale Law School, US 'This is a welcome and invaluable desktop companion for scholars, teachers, lawyers and policy-makers. Chapters by leading scholars from both law and economics cover an expansive array of topics on the regulation of work through the lens of economic analysis, concisely explaining theoretical foundations as well as identifying cutting-edge intellectual controversies. I recommend it most highly.' -- Gillian Lester, University of California, Berkeley, School of Law, US
