Labor law primarily concerns the special rights of employees, even if some jurisdictions exert direct influence on the economic system. Systematically, one may differenciate between individual labor law, collective labor law and (public) health and safety law. Focus of the course will be on individual contracts between employers and employees. However, first the students will get familiar with the legal and collective (in particular, collective agreements and industrial relations) determinants and conditions of employment. Later the focus will be on statement, content and termination of an employment contract as a specific form of a service contract. International labour law is treated at least in its structural principles according to EU regulations. Finally, the sense or nonsense of corporate restructuring based on emloyment legislation will be discussed in more detail.
