  8. Labour Law, Vulnerability and the Regulation of Precarious Work

    Labour Law, Vulnerability and the Regulation of Precarious Work

    Lisa Rodgers
    The shifting nature of employment practice towards the use of more precarious work forms has caused a crisis in classical labour law and engendered a new wave of regulation. This timely book deftly uses this crisis as an opportunity to explore the notion of precariousness or vulnerability in employment relationships. Its logical structure situates vulnerability in its developmental context before moving on to examine the goals of the regulation of labour law for vulnerability, its current status in the law and case studies of vulnerability such as temporary agency work and domestic work.

  13. Research Handbook on Transnational Labour Law

    Research Handbook on Transnational Labour Law

    Edited by Adelle Blackett, Anne Trebilcock
    The editors’ substantive introduction and the specially commissioned chapters in the Handbook explore the emergence of transnational labour law as a field, along with its contested contours. The expansion of traditional legal methods, such as treaties, is juxtaposed with the proliferation of contemporary alternatives such as indicators, framework agreements and consumer-led initiatives. Key international and regional institutions are studied for their coverage of such classic topics as freedom of association, equality, and sectoral labour standard-setting, as well as for the space they provide for dialogue. The volume underscores transnational labour law’s capacity to build bridges, including on migration, climate change and development. Learn More

  15. The Sustainability of the European Social Model

    The Sustainability of the European Social Model

    Edited by Jean-Claude Barbier, Ralf Rogowski, Fabrice Colomb
    This book argues that the European Social Model can only be sustained in the current economic crisis if social and employment policies are adequately recognised as integral parts of European economic policy-making. The contributing authors investigate this hypothesis through comparative evaluations of interactions of EU economic governance with national systems of social protection. In particular they focus on two key policy areas – social services of general interest and the regulation of working time – as well as covering areas such as social inclusion, active ageing policies and job quality. By combining sociological approaches with legal analyses, the book provides unique insights and evaluation of EU methods of governance. Learn More

    Edited by Lynda J. Oswald, Marisa Anne Pagnattaro

This book examines the pressing legal issues that arise at the intersections of intellectual property law, employment law, and global trade, such as the use of employment contracts to protect intellectual property, ownership of intellectual property created by the employee, officer liability issues relating to infringement, post-employment confidentiality and non-compete agreements, and inadvertent or deliberate misappropriation or theft of trade secrets.

  18. Research Handbook on Transparency

    Research Handbook on Transparency

    Edited by Padideh Ala’i, Robert G. Vaughn
    In the last two decades transparency has become a ubiquitous and stubbornly ambiguous term. Typically understood to promote rule of law, democratic participation, anti-corruption initiatives, human rights, and economic efficiency, transparency can also legitimate bureaucratic power, advance undemocratic forms of governance, and aid in global centralization of power. This path-breaking volume, comprising original contributions on a range of countries and environments, exposes the many faces of transparency by allowing readers to see the uncertainties, inconsistencies and surprises contained within the current conceptions and applications of the term.

  19. Law and Economics of Discrimination

    Law and Economics of Discrimination

    Edited by John J. Donohue III
    This important volume introduces the reader to the key theoretical and empirical issues concerning the topical field of law and economics of discrimination. The book begins with readings from Gary Becker’s seminal work on the economics of discrimination followed by a series of papers that try to evaluate the degree of discrimination in labour markets and the extent to which government intervention has reduced this discrimination. In addition to examining discrimination on the basis of race, gender, and sexual orientation in the labour market, Professor Donohue explores the problem of discrimination in various consumer markets, in the criminal justice sphere, in education and in health care. Along with an original introduction, this valuable collection will be of immense use to both scholars and practitioners with an interest in the law and economics of discrimination. Learn More
