The Center for Women and Work (CWW) released a  study, Giving Voice to New Jersey's Caregivers: The Union Experiences of Home-Based Child Care Providers

CWW Report-Giving Voice

The report describes how home-based workers have fared three years after unionization and only four years after they gained the right to organize. CWW's research was highlighted in the Star-Ledger, In These Times, Workers Independent News, Rutgers Today, American Rights at Work Education Fund's report, and by the library at the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees.

 


Professor Ingrid Fulmer's research is in the areas of human resource management, organizational behavior, and business ethics. She studies relationships among human resource practices, worker attitudes, and organizational performance, with particular interest in executive and non-executive compensation and employee benefits. She also studies social interactions in organizations, focusing on how those interactions are shaped by individual differences and by choice of influence tactics (e.g., communication medium, intentional use of emotion, unethical behavior).
