Bogomtale fra forlaget.

This new book is a practical guide to the comparative laws in Europe that provides straightforward answers to the most commonly asked questions. It offers essential analysis of the legal systems in key European jurisdictions and considers employment issues not only from a legal perspective but also in terms of custom and practice.
The book adopts a practical approach with checklists, flowcharts, worked examples and precedents and a number of important EU measures are included in the Appendices for ease of reference. It acts as a first point of reference, saving time and money by avoiding the use of specialists in each different country at too early a stage.
