Changing industrial relations and modernisation of labour law
Includes bibliographical references.
Thirty-three authorities in the field of labour and industrial relations law gather here to enhance and complement the work of the late Marco Biagi, a man who, at the time of his violent and untimely death, had shown himself to be the most insightful and committed international scholar in this complex and controversial - and, as it proved, even dangerous field. The topics covered range over many of Professor Biagi's special interests, including the following: the formulation of a new basis for labour law that could resolve new issues; employee protection in corporate restructuring; the trend toward individual "enterprise bargaining"; a new European employment policy and what it might entail; the growing phenomenon of "flexibilisation" and the effects of an ageing workforce. It also examines: the crucial nexus of free trade, labour and human rights; the promise of EU enlargement; and protection of part-time workers. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
