This chapter seeks to elucidate the role of ‘European law’ in the legal construction of personal work relations in European national legal systems in general, and in national labour law systems in particular. It begins by identifying the set of problems which beset the legal construction of personal work relations in European national labour law. It suggests that European law, and EU law in particular, has itself become deeply implicated in that complex set of issues. It then proceeds to suggest ways in which EU law could begin to provide solutions to these analytical problems for national labour law systems, to which EU law itself is, to a certain extent, a contributor. In particular, the chapter advances the notion of a European Common Legal Framework for the Law of Personal Work Relations.

Keywords:   European Labour Law, EU concept of worker, legal construction, personal work, legal systems
