The vast single labour market of the European Union continues to manifest an ever-increasing interdependence of economies, companies, trade unions and employees, calling once again for an update of Roger Blanpain’s European Labour Law.
The thirteenth edition remains a leading practice guide in its field, covering the full spectrum – legislation, collective agreements, and more than 400 cases – of both individual and collective labour law and practice from the fundamental freedoms to the significance of the Reform Treaty of Lisbon.
Among the abundant new material in the Thirteenth Edition you will find commentary and analysis of such issues and trends as the following:
- EU action plans regarding equal treatment
Recognising the impact of the EU on labour law and especially the crucial role of the European Court of Justice, the 13th edition updates the book’s case law regarding such important issues as free movement of labour, freedom of services, and equal treatment. It also surveys the possibilities for European-wide collective agreements, as the social dialogue is evaluated against the background of European social realities.
A comprehensive general introduction details how the Community institutions affect labour law, focusing on the legislative process in the EU and its relationship to other international organizations, especially the ILO. Special attention is given to the role of the European social partners – Business Europe, CEEP, UEAPME and the ETUC. In this context the author also clarifies the role of such organs as the Economic and Social Committee and the European Social Fund.
As in previous editions, the thirteenth edition includes such features as appendices presenting primary texts, a bibliography, an alphabetical list of cited cases from the European Court of Justice, and an index.
