Employment researcher Thomas Kochan will discuss the future of labor-management relations in the United States, as part of the Watson Distinguished Speaker Series. Kochan, whose research focuses on the need to update America’s work and employment policies, institutions, and practices, is the author of a book that shares the name of the lecture. His recent work highlights the challenges working families face in meeting their responsibilities at work, home, and in their communities. Kochan is a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The event begins at noon in the Watson Institute, Joukowsky Forum, 111 Thayer St.
