The law of dependent work relations in contemporary Hellas combines a number of historical trends, including a unique communal and mercantile collectivism that has flourished for many centuries and survived the Turkish occupation. The country's venerable democratic traditions have ensured its early adoption of such international developments as trade unions, collective bargaining, social insurance, ILO conventions and EC labour directives. This text provides a survey of the subject that is both usefully brief and sufficiently detailed to answer most questions likely to arise in any legal setting pertaining to labour and industrial relations in Hellas. The reader should find clear and concise discussion of such topics as: social security; deregulation; the individual employment contract; government agencies affecting labour; significant jurisprudence; competitive examinations; the right to non-performance; duties of the employer; privacy and harassment; leave of absence; forms of remuneration; termination of employment; employers'associations; and strikes and lock-outs.
