Over the last fifty years the nature of work and work injury has changed dramatically. Since the 1980s, workers' compensation claims have grown steadily and insurance institutions are feeling the crunch. In Injury and the New World of Work, Terrence Sullivan emphasizes the precarious line between the expansion of needs-based justice and the preservation of work-based prosperity. The contributors to the book examine a broad range of research solutions and policy options for dealing with the critical state of workers' compensation. The essays draw on recent case studies and original empirical work from Canada, situating the book within a comparative international frame of reference.
