Bogomtale fra forlaget.

This volume of the series Scandinavian Studies in Law provides a broad, comparative analysis of the development of Scandinavian labour law over the last decades. Labour law in the Nordic countries is no longer solely the concern of national legislators and social partners. International influences, especially from the European Community, are important. This volume covers several topics – such as equal treatment, employee privacy and temporary-work agencies – that would not have been regarded as relevant to a presentation of Nordic labour law some thirty years ago. The volume also contains a comprehensive list of legal abbreviations.
