The nature and structure of work is changing across Europe with new working patterns, flexible working practices, and demands for new unemployment rights. Moreover, the move towards establishing a Single European Market from 1992 onwards involves the creation of a new legal framework for employment rights and practices. This volume explains what EC legislation means in this sphere, and outlines what is likely to happen as part of the `1992' programme. Employers - big and small - employees and trade unions alike will find this volume an invaluable guide and a single source of reference. It will also be of interest to those in public administration and social organisations concerned with employment rights and practices. A single European market raises many issues for how and when we work, what rights we have, and what we can ask for. Employment policy within the EC is thus set to undergo important changes and most of us will need to be aware of them.
