K. Lippel, The Science and Politics of Occupational Disease Recognition in Workers' Compensation, In Stephanie Premji (dir.), Sick and Tired: Health and Safety Inequalities, Fernwood 2018.

Bringing together a multidisciplinary group of experts from the fields of labour studies, public health, ergonomics, epidemiology, sociology and law, Sick and Tired examines the inequalities in workplace health and safety. Using an anti-oppressive framework, chapters interrogate a wide range of issues, including links between precarious employment and mental health, the inverse relationship between power and occupational health through the experiences of women, immigrants and older workers, and the need for creative strategies that promote health and safety in ways that support empowerment and equity.
