Volume 42 Symposium (2009-10): Redefining Work: Implications of the Four-Day Work Week

On Friday October 30, 2009, the Connecticut Law Review hosted its annual symposium in the William R. Davis Courtroom at the University of Connecticut School of Law.  This year’s topic was Redefining Work: Implications of the Four-Day Work Week.  A diverse group of legal scholars, economists, and other professionals examined the four-day work week as a potential vehicle for achieving a variety of economic and social benefits, including:

  • reducing the conflict between work responsibilities and family/community commitments;
  • improving workplace morale and reducing absentee and stress-based injury rates;
  • reducing unemployment;
  • reducing energy use and costs;
  • improving the environment and the quality of community life by reducing commuting times.
