Labour Law in an Era of Globalization

Oxford University Press

In this section of the book, the focus shifts to the employment relationship and its place in the corporation. This chapter focuses on the historical development in the UK of the contract of employment, exploring its role in bridging the gap between the ‘Master and Servant’ era and that of the welfare state. Emphasizing the mutability and adaptability of the contract of employment in the face of radical changes in labour market structures and workplace organization, the discussion is optimistic about contemporary efforts to re-mould contract to fit new and diverging forms of work relations.

Keywords:   employment contract, work relations, market structure, welfare state, labour market
