Labor law primarily concerns the special rights of employees, even if some jurisdictions exert direct influence on the economic system. Systematically, one may differentiate between individual labor law, collective labor law, and (public) health and safety law. The 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 labor law is treated at least in its structural principles according to EU regulations. Finally, the sense or nonsense of corporate restructuring based on employment legislation will be discussed in more detail.
