The text introduces selected extracts from cases, statutes, reports, official statistics, and academic commentary and analysis, and the whole is designed to provide all the materials needed for courses in labour law or employment law. The text emphasises recent developments including the expansion of legal regulation, new forms of work, the integration of labour law with broader policies aimed at the enhancement of competitiveness and the prevention of social exclusion, equal opportunities and the protection of rights in the workplace, and new mechanisms for worker participation in decisions.
