EU Labour Law is a concise, readable and thought-provoking introduction to the labour and employment law of the European Union.
The book explores the subject's major policy themes, examines the various procedures by which EU labour law is made, and analyses key topics such as worker migration, equality, working time and procedures for workers' participation in employers' decision-making. It sets the legal materials in their policy context and identifies the important issues which have shaped the development of EU labour law and are likely to determine its future, including the economic crisis and the debate about fundamental rights in the EU.
This accessible yet rigorous book will appeal to undergraduate and postgraduate law students, academics and practitioners working on domestic and EU labour and employment law, as well as those with an interest in this increasingly important subject from the perspective of business and management, economics, sociology or politics.
