Product description

Why should you subscribe to EU & International Employment Law

EU & International Employment Law is designed to assist employment lawyers and human resource professionals who require information about the employment practices of an unfamiliar jurisdiction. For each country covered, the work draws together, in sufficient detail for most practical purposes, the information necessary to make an informed decision.

There are many topics that an employment lawyer needs to be aware of, and with an increasingly international outlook, knowing which jurisdiction to look at can be difficult. Highlighting such an issue is the recent decision of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) in Asklepios Kliniken Langen-Seligenstadt GmbH v Felja [2017] IRLR 653, read more here.
