EC Labour Law is an introductory text that is structured to cover the main substantive areas of this branch of EU law. It provides, where possible, a clear focus on EC labour law in its own right, rather than in a wider social policy context. The author explores the parameters and boundaries of the evolving EC labour law and employment strategy in the areas of collective labour law, free movement of workers, equal opportunities and employment protection. The major impact of the Treaty of Amsterdam, interaction with other policy areas and academic debate surrounding the status of EC labour laws as an autonomous subject are also analysed in full. *Focuses on EC Labour law prese, rather than in a social policy context. *The author is a considerable authority in the field.
