Understanding Labour Law: A Timeless Idea, a Timed-Out Idea, or an Idea Whose Time has Now Come?
This is an introduction in which the purpose of the book is explained and a brief outline of the each chapter is provided. One of the questions that continue to hover in the background throughout most of the book is whether the idea of labour law is constant or changing. Is it different in different countries? Should it change as circumstances change? Is it the same at the national and international level, or for developed and developing economies? Are we looking for new solutions to old problems? Or are perhaps the problems themselves new? Are we trying to provide a better understanding of an existing body of law, or are we searching for a new legal order? Otherwise put, is the idea of labour law a timeless one, an outdated one, or is labour law, better understood, a new idea whose time has now come?
