About The Future of Labour Law

All over the world a different kind of labour law is in the process of formation; in Gramsci's phrase, this is an interregnum when the old is dying and the new is struggling to be born. This book, to which an internationally distinguished group of scholars has contributed, examines the future of labour law from a wide variety of perspectives. Issues covered include the ideology of New Labour law; the employment relationship; the public/private divide; termination of employment; equality law; corporate governance; collective bargaining; workers' participation; strikes; international labour standards; the role of EU law; the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights; labour law and development in Southern Africa; and the impact of globalisation. The essays are written in honour of the outstanding labour lawyer Professor Sir Bob Hepple QC, who has contributed to so many areas of this dynamic field.

“...many of the essays sort out key issues and problems with great insight.” –  Hugh Collins, The Modern Law Review

The Future of Labour Law is an excellent book, and it will stand as a very fine testament to Bob Hepple's contribution to labour law. The separate contributions are of a very high standard, and some of them are likely to become very important in their own right. I congratulate the editors and the publishers and warmly recommend the work to all with an interest in this evolving field.” –  Richard Mitchell, Centre for Employment and Labour Relations Law, University of Melbourne, Industrial Law Journal
