Working Law

Genre: Social Science

Since the passage of the Civil Rights Act, virtually all companies have antidiscrimination policies in place. Although these policies represent some progress, women and minorities remain underrepresented within the workplace as a whole and even more so when you look at high-level positions. They also tend to be less well paid. How is it that discrimination remains so prevalent in the American workplace despite the widespread adoption of policies designed to prevent it? One reason for the limited success of antidiscrimination policies, argues Lauren B. Edelman, is that the law regulating companies is broad and ambiguous, and managers therefore play a critical role in shaping what it means in daily practice. Often, what results are policies and procedures that are largely symbolic and fail to dispel long-standing patterns of discrimination. Even more troubling, these meanings of the law that evolve within companies tend to eventually make their way back into the legal domain, inconspicuously influencing lawyers for both plaintiffs and defendants and even judges. When courts look to the presence of antidiscrimination policies and personnel manuals to infer fair practices and to the presence of diversity training programs without examining whether these policies are effective in combating discrimination and achieving racial and gender diversity, they wind up condoning practices that deviate considerably from the legal ideals.

Genre: Law

'I feel confident that this book will be judged to have made a very significant contribution to the study of European labour law. It fills a particular niche within the rich existing literature by providing a lucid, accessible, and succinct thematic overview of the subject, in much the same way as the author has so successfully done for the study of British labour law in her work on perspectives on labour law.' – Mark Freedland, Oxford University, UK 'EU law, shaped both judicially and at the legislative level, disrupts national labour law – perhaps for good reasons, perhaps for bad reasons, sometimes for reasons which are elusive. Challenges of an intellectual and practical nature confront those trying to pick a path through material accumulated over several decades – and intrigue those thinking about the future of the European Social Model. This book offers an insightful, thoughtful and inspiring account of the nature(s) and purpose(s) of EU labour law and is a hugely welcome addition to the literature.' – Stephen Weatherill, Somerville College, Oxford, UK EU Labour Law is a concise, readable and thought-provoking introduction to the labour and employment law of the European Union. The book explores the subject's major policy themes, examines the various procedures by which EU labour law is made, and analyses key topics such as worker migration, equality, working time and procedures for workers' participation in employers' decision-making. It sets the legal materials in their policy context and identifies the important issues which have shaped the development of EU labour law and are likely to determine its future, including the economic crisis and the debate about fundamental rights in the EU. This accessible yet rigorous book will appeal to undergraduate and postgraduate law students, academics and practitioners working on domestic and EU labour and employment law, as well as those with an interest in this increasingly important subject from the perspective of business and management, economics, sociology or politics.

Deregulation and Labour Law

Author: Roger Blanpain
Publisher:
ISBN: STANFORD:36105061919655
Release Date: 2000-01-01
Genre: Law

Since the onset of globalisation, protective labour legislation has been deeply eroded throughout the industrialised world. In its place we have a plethora of new employment phenomena such as flexible work time, temporary work services, decentralisation of collective bargaining, private fee-charging employment placement services--a wide variety of arrangements in which employers and individual workers reach mutual agreement with little or no reliance on legal norms of government regulation. What are the dimensions and implications of this trend? And how should we go about ensuring the continuing effectiveness of labour law as an instrument of social ordering? These important questions drew a group of prominent labour law scholars from eight major developed countries to the Fifth Japan Institute of Labour (JIL) Comparative Labour Law Seminar in Tokyo in November 1998. This book is the record of this significant seminar. Each participant presented papers and engaged in group discussion on the following topics: changes in labour market regulations, such as abolition of state-monopolised employment placement services and deregulation of fixed-term contracts; trends in individual labour relations, such as working hour flexibilisation and expansion of derogation toward individual consent developments in collective labour relations, such as the movements from centralised bargaining to company- or plant-level bargaining and from trade unions to works councils.

In recognition of the growing importance of global labour and employment law, the Center for Labor and Employment Law at New York University School of Law dedicated its 61st Annual Conference on Labor to an in-depth examination of issues arising in this area. This volume of the proceedings of the 2008 conference contains papers presented at that meeting, all here updated to reflect recent developments, as well as additional contributions from other practitioners and academics with extensive knowledge and experience in the field. Experts from both the practicing bar and academia - twenty-seven in all - use their unique strengths to address issues worthy of concern in each juridical realm. An unusual feature of this volume in the series is its in-depth attention to comparative law in the field, with exploration of developments in China, France, and New Zealand, as well as in European Union law. As always, this annual conference captures valuable insights and syntheses of central labour and employment law issues and will be of great value to practitioners and academics in the field.
