The Glossary of labour law and industrial relations, one of the first of its kind, provides a comprehensive and accessible overview of the development and current status of labour law and industrial relations issues, including globalization and international labour standards.
Going a step further than simple definitions, this easy-to-use glossary provides substantive entries and cross-references between international labour standards, European Union Directives, resolutions and regulations. In this respect, definitions from the public domain are taken from legislative and specialized texts dealing with international standards and institutions in general.
The glossary also explores the most relevant issues surrounding the global debate on the social dimension of globalization and includes entries on current achievements, debates, ideas and programmes, as highlighted in the 2004 Report of the Director-General of the ILO on the World Commission on the Social Dimension of Globalization, A fair globalization: The role of the ILO. These issues are summarized in the substantive introduction for easy reference.
Conceived as an education tool, this storehouse of practical definitions also provides practitioners and scholars with advice and suggestions that may be taken into account in their day-to-day work. Legal specialists, employers, workers and government officials will find recognized and accepted international labour practices in a number of domains of interest to them. A valuable addition to the current literature on the topic, this glossary aims to contribute to the overall development of a sound social dialogue and industrial relations system at different levels of the economy.
