With a membership comprised of virtually every European state, the Council of Europe plays a major role in protecting human rights and developing social policy standards. Its European Social Charter may be regarded as the farthest-reaching legally binding instrument guaranteeing labour human rights in the national territory of all 47 Member States.

This book – one of a series derived from Kluwer’s matchless multi-volume Encyclopaedia of Labour Law and Industrial Relations – focuses on the compliance of employers with the labour regulations of the Council of Europe. It is thoroughly practical in orientation, and representatives of both employers and employees can be assured that it fulfils the need for accurate and detailed knowledge of the role of the Council of Europe’s conventions in labour and industrial relations. Among much else, these conventions (and specifically the Social Charter) protect workers’ rights to such aspects of their employment as the following:

- just conditions of work; - safe and healthy working conditions; - fair remuneration; - vocational guidance and training; - equal opportunities and equal treatment without discrimination on various grounds; - protection in cases of termination of employment; - protection of claims in the event of the insolvency of an employer; - gainful occupation on the territories of other countries; - dignity at work; and - organizing and collective bargaining.

The book thoroughly explains every detail of procedure and compliance, with complete descriptions of the work and responsibilities of the Council’s various supervisory bodies. Easy to understand for lawyers and non-lawyers alike, it is an essential tool for corporate counsel, human resources managers, labour lawyers, and trade unionist.
