Book summary: Workplace policies that provide flexible scheduling, leave for caregiving, and assistance with child care likely benefit employers in recruitment, retention, productivity, and health care costs. The benefits to employees seem obvious. Researchers, however, are just beginning to move beyond correlational, descriptive studies into rigorous intervention research. These new investigations examine not only the effects of formal policies, whether federal law or company HR initiatives, but also changes in workplace cultures. _Work-Life Policies_ assembles a diverse group of commentators industrial psychologists, labor organizers, policy analysts, management scholars, organizational psychologists, and others to offer fresh ideas and new insight. The contributors examine organizational policies, municipal policies, state policies, and federal policies as well as workers who vary from salaried professionals to low-wage part-time hourly workers.
