During the last couple of years, the Danish flexicurity model has gained attention from the European Union as a successful way of combining a flexible labour law regime with a well-developed social protection of employees.

However, the Danish labour market model is in itself under pressure from an even increasing EU harmonization in terms of pay and working conditions.

This book examines the pressure on the flexible Danish labour law system coming from EU directives as well as case-law developed by the European Court of Justice emphasizing the increasing tension between the flexibility that the directives aim to provide to member states and the uniform interpretation and application of the directives enforced by the case-law of the Court.
