  1. Social Security Outside the Realm of the Employment Contract

    Social Security Outside the Realm of the Employment Contract

    Edited by Mies Westerveld, Marius Olivier
    All over the world countries face the challenge of inadequate social security coverage for workers without an employment contact. In countries of the global south, this phenomenon is a natural consequence of large informal economies. Countries in the global north increasingly witness the same issue, due to growing labour market flexibility (flex contracts, dependent self-employment, digitization of labour). In this book authors from both hemispheres exchange insights, experiments and practices with the intention of finding better ways to deal with the social security challenges facing workers.

  2. Globalization, Sports Law and Labour Mobility

    Globalization, Sports Law and Labour Mobility

    Matt Nichol
    This book examines labour regulation and labour mobility in two professional baseball leagues: Major League Baseball in the United States and Nippon Professional Baseball in Japan. Through vivid comparative study, Matt Nichol explores how each league internally regulates labour mobility and how this internal regulation engages with external regulation from the legislature, statutory authorities and the courts. This comparison of two highly restrictive labour markets utilizes regulatory theory and labour regulation and suggests a framework for a global player transfer system in baseball. Learn More

  12. 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.

  17. 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

  19. 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
