EU Intervention in Domestic Labour Law

Phil Syrpis

Oxford University Press

This chapter considers the various interventions of the political institutions in the labour law field both in their own right, and in the context of the approach of the Court (analysed in detail in Chapter 4). Harmonization, minimum standard-setting, and the open method of coordination (OMC) are discussed with reference to their capacity to achieve the integrationist, economic, and social objectives of the European Union, and to the constraints imposed by the principles of subsidiarity and proportionality. The Working Time Directive and Lisbon Strategy are subjected to close scrutiny.

Keywords:   harmonization, minimum-standard setting, open method of coordination (OMC), Working Time Directive, Lisbon Strategy
