Out Of Print
This new edition of the popular text EC Employment Law has been completely updated to take account of every new development in the field. The effective incorporation into the EC treaty, by the Amsterdam Treaty, of the Social Policy Agreement is examined in detail. The ever-expanding body of case law on the subject is also analysed, including important rulings such as Marschall on positive action, Grant on sexual orientation discrimination, and Sala on citizenship.

The book begins with an outline of the key principles and remedies of the Community legal system as they relate to Employment law, it then goes on to examine the development and evolution of EC employment law in context, focusing on the shift from employment law (employment rights) to employment policy (job creation, training). The fundamental question of the purpose of EC employment law is also addressed is it economic, social or both?

The rest of the text focuses on substantive areas of EC employment law: the free movement of persons, specifically workers; social security; non-discrimination (a concept developed largely in the context of sex); health and safety; and so on.

This book is the most comprehensive treatment of the subject available. It will appeal to academics. Practitioners and students alike.
