The ESRC Fairness at Work seminar series was held in conjunction with the University of Manchester and the Institute of Employment Studies.
The aims of the series were to advance our understanding of 'fairness' - and related concepts such as 'organisational justice' and 'corporate social responsibility', across academic disciplines and in practice. We explored potential tensions and synergies in relation to 'fairness' across different interest groups (employers, employees, customers/service users) differences within the workforce (such as those with and without care responsibilities) and between households, firms and state public policy.
