L. Camille Herbert, the Carter C. Kissell Professor of Law at Moritz, was recently featured in a piece by titled, “2021’s Hardest-Working Cities in America.”

“I think that at least part of the reason that Americans work more than their European counterparts has to do with the fact that Americans undervalue leisure time and the need for leisure time to recharge. This affects both individuals, who may not adequately value their time away from work, and employers, who may demand more work from employees than is good for the employees and productivity generally. I do not think more work for work’s sake is worth it, because it results in employee exhaustion and burnout, which is not helpful for productivity.”
