Companies change their organisation in response to crises, globalisation and increasing competition. Restructuring processes take place and part of the workforce is forced to find other employment. This book explores and explains employment security systems with a specific focus on job-to-job transitions for redundant employees in four European countries: Sweden, United Kingdom, Austria and Spain. In addition, this study addresses possible lessons the Netherlands can learn from these foreign job-to-job arrangements. This multidisciplinary book will be of special interest to members of the European Commission, policymakers and academics, as well as to students in the fields of labour market and social
security, industrial relations, labour law, labour economics and sociology.
