For over a decade now the legal nature of the employer-employee relationship has been subject to the intense scrutiny of EU social policy. Following Community directives, Member States have established social programmes mandating some degree of employee involvement in management decision making. Other European legislatures have been quick to follow suit, introducing at least minimal levels of information and consultation rights for employees. To some extent as a result of these developments, the principles and provisions of major sources of international law and social policy - ILO conventions, OECD pronouncements, and the Social Charter of the Council of Europe - have taken on an increasingly significant role in European labour and employment law as we enter what seems to be a major new phase of European social history.
This immensely useful new publication not only assembles all the relevant legal texts with country-by-country commentary; its looseleaf format guarantees that its detailed and comprehensive coverage will remain current.;In this first subscription twelve reports, with all corresponding documentation, are already in place, and sixteen more are in preparation. Each report is written by an authority in the labour law and industrial relations law of the country or organization being covered, and follows a common basic outline for easy comparison across issues or subject areas. European practitioners of labour law and industrial relations law could not ask for a more useful reference work. With the primary source material and expert commentary and analysis provided by the Handbook of Employee Involvement in Europe, it is easy to research applicable law at every level in any legal issue likely to arise. It is worth mentioning that this publication brings to fruition yet another of the many brainchildren of the late Marco Biagi, whose team at the University of Modena will continue to play a major role in its ongoing development.
