Product Description

Labour law is the body of laws, administrative rulings and precedents that address the legal rights of, and restrictions on, working people and their organisations. As such, it mediates many aspects of the relationship between trade unions, employers and employees.There are two broad categories of labour law; colective labour law and individual labour law. The labour movement has been instrumental in the enacting of laws protecting labour rights in the 19th and 20th centuries. Labour rights have been integral to the social and economic development since the industrial revolution. The general trend of agreements has been the constant broadening of their scope, both with regard to the fields covered, the categories of persons protected and the framework within which the matters are treated. Thus a number of these instruments go beyod the traditional field of labour law and touch upon matters of civil liberties and penal law, of property law etc.

In this publication, the majority of important regulations and agreements are brought together.
