A casebook on labour law, Ewan McGaughey

"A Casebook on Labour Law is made for every university labour or employment law course in the UK, set within European Union and international law. It covers (1) history and theory, (2) contract and rights, (3) participation, (4) equality, and (5) job security, with chapters on essential topics for modern labour policy: the right to vote for company boards, work councils and pensions, and laws to get full employment and end unemployment. Each chapter summarises further reading from noteworthy books and journals, and follows a unified conceptual structure that aims to transcend historic divisions between common law or statute, private or public, and national or international law. It invites the reader to engage in the economic and social evidence about labour law's empirical consequences, as well as political principles"--, Provided by publisher
