Taken in conjunction with the European Works Council Directive and the European Company Statute, the EC directive on information and consultation rights of employees aims to strengthen a growing spirit of co-operation between employees and employers. This book offers in-depth analysis, legislative history, and documentation of the interwoven genesis of these three crucially important labour law initiatives and their impact on industrial relations and HRM.;Questions central to both the legislative debate and to this book include: how will the information and consultation rights be organised?; what can be learned from the experience of the European Works Council Directive (1994), now that more than 600 EWCs have been established by agreements between management and labour?; what is the role of trade unions and collective bargaining?; what role can employees play in the exercise of managerial prerogative?; what will be the impact on the employability of the employees?; how does the European Works Council relate to the European Company Statute?; how will the presence of employees' representatives in the supervisory board of the companies be organised?; how will the Directive be implemented in the EU member states?; and how much room is there for national employment systems in implementing the directives?;In his analysis, Professor Blanpain shows that European law-makers are now answering these questions, aiming at clarity and coherence in their definitions (especially in the European Company Statute) of such terms as ""involvement,"" ""consultation,"" ""information,"" and ""participation,"" although they are careful to leave the notion of managerial prerogative intact. The legal texts and penetrating commentary in the book galvanize the notions and concepts that surround this important issue.
