Crafting a Progressive Workplace Regulatory Policy: Why Enforcement Matters
30 Pages Posted: 28 Jun 2007
This essay sets out a progressive workplace regulatory policy that can also prove institutionally and politically tractable. I lay out a broad regulatory agenda on normative grounds and then discuss how existing federal workplace policies provide for those ends. Given this "installed base" of regulations, I focus on what regulatory strategies a new administration might draw upon to most effectively advance those goals given existing systems. Finally, I argue that such a regulatory strategy is consistent with a variety of institutional factors affecting federal policy.
