Collective Dismissal in the European Union. A Comparative Analysis
Collective Dismissal in the European Union is a comprehensive practical analysis of collective dismissal in EU Member States. When business imperatives require large enterprises to re-organize, involving a reduction in staff that is legally characterized as a collective dismissal, EU directives and laws across Europe mandate specific procedures to support workers who have been made redundant, and allow for sanctions where regulatory or judicial scrutiny uncovers violations. It is thus essential that a clearly defined framework of the laws and jurisprudence in force in each Member State be provided for businesses and their counsel to ensure compliance and avoid sanctions. This book, the first and only of its kind, provides exactly such an analysis.
What’s in this book:
This book is structured on a country-by-country basis, with each chapter written by an expert in the country, covering and responding concisely to such questions as the following:
- how is ‘collective dismissal’ calculated?
- which issues regarding collective layoffs’ procedures trigger legal intervention?
- what happens when enterprises provide incomplete or delayed information to labour unions or public officials?
- when can a worker be reinstated or claim compensation?
Each chapter clarifies the extent to which directives have been implemented in the Member States and whether the law in force provides workers with some more favourable treatments than EU actually requires. Jurisprudence and its practical application are analysed from the perspective of the ‘law in action’ rather than that of the ‘law in the books’. A concluding chapter examines global standards and trends in this area of law.
How this will help you:
There is no other publication fully devoted to the subject of collective dismissal, extensively elaborated and supported with case law. As a source of reliable information as manifested in the actions of judges, lawyers, solicitors, firms, and labour unions, this book has no peers. It serves as a handbook to obtain thorough insight into the collective dismissal procedure in each EU Member State, which can then be put to use by lawyers and solicitors specializing in labour law, in-house counsel and human resources professionals at multinational companies, regulatory authorities, and labour unions, as well as by universities and centres of research in the field of European law and labour law.
The editors – Roberto Cosio, Filippo Curcuruto, Vincenzo Di Cerbo and Giovanni Mammone – all have extensive experience in judicial and administrative practice related to EU labour law, particularly in Italy. All are well-known authors in this field.
