This new edition of EC Employment Law provides a complete revision and update of the leading english language text in the field. The coverage in the new edition has been expanded with material on all the latest developments, including the new Equality Directives, the development of the European Employment Strategy, the Open Method of Coordination (OMC) as well as more traditional regulatory techniques. It also analyses the ever expanding body of employment case law.

The book begins with an examination of the development of EC employment law focusing on the shift from employment law to employment policy. The text then considers rule-making in the field of employment law considering both the traditional routes to legislation and the new governance techniques, including the OMC.

The book considers the substantive area of employment law, considering the free movement of persons, equal treatment, health and safety and working conditions, the restructuring of enterprises, worker participations and collective action. Throughout, the book addresses the fundamental question as to the purpose of EC employment law: is it primarily economic, social or both?

New to this edition:-

  • Includes a new chapter on the European Employment Strategy, focussing on the Lisbon process and the new methods of governance employed by the EU to achieve harmonisation, especially the 'Open Method of Co-ordination'
  • Re-structures several chapters to make them more approachable to the student reader
  • Places greater emphasis on the EU's Charter of Fundamental Rights and its impact on EU social policy
