Regulating Flexible Work

Deirdre McCann

Oxford Monographs on Labour Law

  • Assesses how labour law must evolve to continue protecting workers as the variety of available working arrangements increases
  • Explores the labour law implications of changes in the labour market as management and economic thinking about optimal labour market structure evolves
  • Examines recent reforms at EU level, and the New Labour Government's 'fairness and flexibility' programme
  • Argues that employment policies are still grounded in narrow conceptions of labour market flexibility that put flexible workers, including many women, at a continued disadvantage
