This edition of a widely-used legal guide takes into account all developments of Swiss federal law in the field of labour legislation and regulation, namely the new Federal Constitution of 18 April 1999, the Act on equality between women and men in 1995, the important revision of the Labour Act in 1998, and the Bilateral Agreements with the European Union.
It shows how much Swiss Labour Law became closer to European Labour Law in the last decade of the 20th century. Both individual and collective labour relations are covered in detail, with attention to such underlying and pervasive factors as public opinion and popular reform and the growth of arbitration and reconciliation as dispute settlement measures. The authors describe all-important details of the law governing hours and wages, benefits, intellectual property implications, trade union activity, employers' associations, jurisdiction in disputes, and other factors.
Following in the steps of the first edition, this very useful and informative book will find a ready readership among entities and individuals doing business in Switzerland today, and will also be of great value to labour and employment lawyers in Switzerland and elsewhere.
