While the idea of happiness at work has been recognised in other fields, there has been relatively little research into the relationship between labour law and happiness in leading law reviews.

Since the 1960s there has been a noticeable increase in the study of people's enjoyment at work. Much of this study engages with job characteristics including working hours, job intensification, task discretion, as well as job constraints such as stress, lack of control and work schedules. Additionally, some researchers have investigated the interaction between work and non-work (such as recreational activities and family life), while others have investigated the potential social and economic advantages resulting from happiness at work (World Database of Happiness).  

While the idea of happiness at work has been recognised in other fields, there has been relatively little research into the relationship between labour law and happiness in leading law reviews.  The purpose of this paper is to explore, in a preliminary way, how happiness at work might be fostered through labour law.
