The widening aspects of labour and social security issues within the EU have given rise to an extensive body of labour law and social security law. The codex is intended to make both these types of law easily accessible drawing together the many texts, which are scattered over quite a number of publications. The codification captures all EU texts on labour and social security, as well as all pertinent Council of Europe documents. A useful index is provided which will be helpful to users consulting the Codex.

Among the texts reprinted in full are the following: All relevant portions of the Treaty on European Union, the Treaty Establishing the European Community, the Treaty of Nice, the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, and the European Convention on Human Rights; The Community Charter of the Fundamental Rights of Workers; All Council directives on equal treatment; All directives on European Works Councils; The European Social Charter.

The work will assist students, scholars and practitioners in the fields of European labour law and social security law.
