Despite its deep roots in the Anglo-American legal tradition, the notion of property in work, is yet to receive the attention it deserves. In this timely and thought-provoking book, Wanjiru Hjoya rises to the challenge of remedying this deficiency, arguing that the notion of workers' property rights in their jobs is part of a deep legal and historical heritage, rather than merely a contemporary conundrum. Challenging and thought provoking, the authors contention that such reframing can play a significant role in striking a satisfactory balance between shareholders and employees in the modern corporation provides a refreshing new contribution to employment law, and puts property in work back on the agenda.
