EUROPEAN INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS DICTIONARY [Now Celebrating its 5th Birthday on 6 December 2010]
Includes Alphabetic Index
Designed as an easy-to-use online reference tool, the European industrial relations dictionary is a comprehensive collection of the most commonly used terms in employment and industrial relations at EU level today. It contains almost 300 alphabetically listed entries, featuring concise definitions and relevant contextual information, with hyperlinks to EU legislation and case law.
Background information is provided on the industrial relations context, institutional framework, legal framework, collective industrial relations, individual employment, the enterprise, free movement of workers, discrimination and equality in employment, health and safety and movement towards an EU system of industrial relations.
The product of a collaborative effort between acknowledged experts in the field, the dictionary is aimed at policymakers, practitioners and all those interested in the history and evolving structure of the European Union. It follows in the wake of the series of national industrial relations glossaries published in the 1990s. The online version of the national glossaries, EMIRE, is still available but is not updated.
