The Legal Construction of Personal Work Relations

Mark Freedland FBA and Nicola Kountouris

  • Provides a critical and systematic analysis of the regulation of personal work contracts in European law that aids understanding of the changes affecting the regulation of the contract of employment and other personal work contracts
  • Develops a new central organising idea for modern employment protection systems in the form of 'the personal work relation', which aids understanding the relationship between the standard contract of employment and other work relationships
  • Presents a comparative analysis of the regulation of personal work relations across selected European legal systems, which highlights the differences and similarities faced by other legal systems striving to adapt their employment protection systems to the changing work practices
  • Explores the concepts of dignity, capability, and reliance in the context of the regulation of personal work relations and suggests new avenues for the reform of labour law systems on the basis of fairness, personal development, and economic performance
