Stability and Change in Nordic Labour Law
Stockholm University, Faculty of Law, Department of Law.

Abstract [en]

This volume provides a broad, comparative analysis of the development of Scandinavian labour law over the last decades. The picture of development is one of both stability and change. The institutional framework of Nordic labour relations has remained largely unchanged; employers organisations and trade unions still hold a strong position, and the collective agreement continues to be the principal instrument for regulation of the labour market. But, in other aspects, extensive changes have occurred. Labour law is no longer solely the concern of national legislators and social partners. International influences, especially from the European Community, are important. Further, this volume covers several topics such as equal treatment, employee privacy and temporary-work agencies that would not have been regarded as relevant some thirty years ago. A majority of the contributions were presented at a conference held in Stockholm 2002.
