Course Description

Changes in the economy have affected the employer-employee relationship and changed the way that employers and workers think about job security and employment contracts in general. These changes have serious implications for the safety and health of workers. This conference will give attendees a relevant background to better understand issues around worker health, safety and job security related to today's economy.  Experts in the field will present research about this changing employer-employee relationship, focusing on practical suggestions to improve worker safety and health.
