The Global Workplace: International and Comparative Employment Law - Cases and Materials

£17.99

Product description

This is the first set of law school course materials in English covering international and comparative employment and labour law. With the forces of globalisation as a backdrop, this casebook develops labour and employment law in the context of the national laws of nine countries important to the global economy - the US, Canada, Mexico, UK, Germany, France, China, Japan and India. These national jurisdictions are highlighted by considering international labour standards promulgated by the International Labour Organization as well as the rulings and standards that emerge from two very different regional trade arrangements - the labour side accord to NAFTA and the European Union. Across all these different sources of law, this book considers the law of individual employment, collective labour law dealing with unionisation as well as the laws against discrimination, the laws protecting privacy and the systems used to resolve labour and employment disputes.

Very good condition. Some slight shelfwear but otherwise no obvious signs of use.
