Changes in Organisational Interpretations of the Lactation at Work Law: How Health Concerns Replace Managerial Goals
Laws are interpreted and applied within organisations by human relations (HR) personnel, as well as supervisory managers who
directly oversee the work of employees. Research has shown that these HR personnel and managers reframe the laws' rights-focused goals into goals that fit better within pre-existing managerial goals, such as efficiency and turnover.
In this seminar Dr Elizabeth Hoffmann, Associate Professor of Sociology at Purdue University, presents her research examining a new law that gives lactating women workers the right to pump breast milk at work, and explores how HR and managerial interpretations evolve over time.
The seminar will take place between 10 am and 11 am on Friday 15 April 2016.
No need to book, all are welcome.
