Challenges for Labour Law
What are the challenges for labour law in the near future? What are the problems and issues to be addressed in times of austerity?
As the Coalition Employment Law Review continues to bite, is the UK destined inevitably to follow a deregulatory agenda which will dismantle existing employment protections? Recent changes to tribunal access, unfair dismissal, TUPE and the Equality Act suggest a plan to strip out any protection not guaranteed by EU law. Will the floor of rights established over the last decades continue to be nibbled away in the name of economic efficiency, or can it be argued that some rights are inalienable in a modern democracy?
Can industrial partnership provide new rights and duties for employers and employees? Can we find novel ways of tackling problems of employment security, discrimination in the workplace and assert new forms of worker voice in a flexible environment? Or are trade unions and collective representation mechanisms doomed to become an anachronism in modern employment?
Given the changing nature of employment dispute resolution mechanisms, how is the role of the courts in shaping labour law likely to develop, and in what directions may we be taken by the CJEU and European Court of Human Rights
The traditional functions of labour law might seem incompatible with an austerity environment. Do the extensive changes in employment relations over recent decades dictate a particular agenda? What alternatives are there?
This conference invites discussion on the challenges for labour law and equality law in the foreseeable future.
Abstracts of 200 words may be sent to either of the joint organisers, Gwyneth Pitt (G.P...@kingston.ac.uk) and Michael Wynn (M.W...@kingston.ac.uk) by Friday 14 February 2014.
Papers will be 20 minutes in length with 10 minutes for questions.
