Mobility and loyalty in labour relations: an Israeli case
Abstract:Employee mobility is a phenomenon that challenges workplace ethics. This paper argues that despite on-going attempts by management and consultants to build and install employee loyalty, and despite the complexity of relationships between employees and their organization, employee mobility remains a common phenomenon in today’s market. Courts, at least Israeli courts, perceive the employee–employer relationship as almost purely contractual and thus strive to protect workers first, often ignoring deeper commitments such as loyalty. This results in a certain dissonance in the relationships between employees and employers.
