The contract of employment provides in many jurisdictions the legal foundation for the employment of workers. This book examines how the development of the common law under the influence of contemporary social and economic pressures has caused this contract to evolve. International employment law experts provide a comparative study of the contract of employment across three closely related common law jurisdictions: the UK, Australia and New Zealand. Adopting a thematic approach, they analyse the key facets of the common law of employment such as who is an employee, the implied duties of employees and the restraints on employee mobility. Examining the interaction between common law and domestic statutory law and the politics and labour relations systems, this book considers the legal variations for each jurisdiction and its response to new developments in employment. It addresses the capacity of the common law to respond to contemporary developments such as the `gig' economy and the increasingly intrusive surveillance of employees, both at work and in their private lives. Insightful and contemporary, this book will appeal to students and scholars of employment and contract law as well as those studying comparative law more widely. Practitioners involved in employment policy or employment litigation will also benefit from the wealth of up-to-date knowledge on common law trends and developments.

Presenting a selection of key issues in the field of international labour law, this work deals with some of the most pressing problems facing governments, employers and workers. Extensive consideration is given to developments with regard to the right to freedom of association, the problems of forced labour, equality of treatment, and working conditions in general, the position of young persons, migrant workers and women. The author examines the most recent case law of the ILO and other international supervisory bodies, including the cases of the German "Berufsverbote". the British GCHQ and the Romanian "systematic policy". The work offers an assimilation of information and analysis across a subject area which has remained largely untouched. It should be of value to academic lawyers, legal practitioners, trade union and employer association officials, as well as to a wide range of professionals in associated fields.
