Assistant Professor, Labor Relations, Law & History
Labor Relations, Law, and History


Duanyi Yang joined the faculty of the ILR School’s Department of Labor Relations, Law, and History after completing her Ph.D. at MIT Sloan School of Management. Her research investigates how organizational human resource management policies operate within different institutional contexts and in the face of globalization, migration, and demographic shifts. Her research integrates theory and research from labor relations, sociology, and human resources management, and currently covers three distinctive national regimes – the United States, China, and Germany.

Duanyi currently has two primary research agendas that together cover employee and employer perspectives in detail. Her first agenda focuses on worker voice, workplace disputes, and grievance systems. Her second agenda investigates how organizational work-family policies affect workers’ well-being, career trajectories, and gender inequality.
