Labor is an important factor in corporate finance.

We invite both theoretical and empirical papers on labor and corporate finance. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to: unemployment insurance, employee culture, labor mobility, labor networks, labor relations, unions, right-to-work laws, skilled labor, noncompetition agreements, employee equity compensation, labor-force heterogeneity, pay inequality, contract negotiations, workforce competition, employee outside options, pensions, and inalienability of human capital.
