“People talk about human capital, for instance, which is what labor accumulates through education and work experience. Human capital differs from the classic kind in that you can’t inherit it, and it can only be rented, not bought or sold” (Robinson, 1994, p. 77).SHOW LESSThe employment relationship is predicated on the exchange of power and authority for compliance and reward. As a result, employees voluntarily relinquish control of their time, effort, and industry. When employees determine that their employers inadequately compensate them for their work and seem to control their lives, conflict can result. This transforms a viable transactional relationship into a crucible of conflict and strife.When people come together in a workplace, they bring with them their values, opinions, prejudices, and sensitivities. Frequently, conflict occurs from within the employer-employee relationship as a result of these differences. Controls, policies, and procedures must thus be created to address conflict and enable organizations to operate effectively. Employers predominantly control the workplace, so most laws and regulations restrict, inhibit, or guide the behavior and authority of employers with respect to employees. Employment law guidelines provide the philosophical, legal, and moral foundations for conflict resolution in the workplace. They embody a vital component of our system of government.Read the Assessment 1 Context document, which contains additional information about regulation of the workplace, covering the following topics:
