Now in its fourth edition, the popular International Labour Law provides you with a revised and updated interpretation of the crucial International Labour Organization (ILO) instruments and#8211; Constitution, conventions, declarations, resolutions, and recommendations.
It also examines other sources of law, such as the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and various model and actual corporate codes of conduct.
The first section provides an introduction to, and a brief history of, the founding principles of the ILO and their relevance today. It considers the long-standing and#8211; but still topical and#8211; relationship between international law and economic competition, and situates international labour standards within the constitutional framework of the ILO (which has issued most of them).
The bulk of the book is divided into three main areas: the sources of international labour law, the content of international labour standards, and their implementation and effectiveness. Within these broad headings youand#8217;ll find comprehensive coverage of areas such as:
The author demonstrates how these rules and standards offer invaluable benchmarks to governments, judiciaries, employers, and trade unions. He analyzes the potential and evolution of these rules, and examines their implementation in a national context, comparing the experiences of different countries.
His book integrates the latest instruments, such as the 2008 Declaration on Social Justice for a Fair Globalization, and examines the most recent debates and#8211; dealing with human rights at work, strikes, social security, health and security at work, and so on. You can be sure that your advice to clients is based on the most thorough commentary available in this area.
The detailed observation and analysis in International Labour Law, along with its overarching social policy, make the book essential reading for legislators, human resources managers, employersand#180; organizations, trade unions, jurists, and academics concerned with the role of work in todayand#8217;s international social system.
Reseña del editor:
No one will deny that labour standards comprise a necessary framework for balanced economic and social development. Yet, on a global level such balanced development has not occurred, despite the existence of a rigorous body of international labour law that has been active and growing for eighty years. The implementation of this law devolves upon states; yet many states have failed to honor it. If we are to take serious steps toward a remedy for this situation, there is no better place to start than a thorough, well-researched survey and analysis of existing international labour law, its sources, its content, its historical development, and an informed consideration of the barriers to its full effectiveness. This book is exactly such a resource. It provides in-depth interpretation of the crucial International Labour Organisation (ILO) instruments' Constitution, conventions, declarations, resolutions, and recommendations as well as such other sources of law as the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and various model and actual corporate codes of conduct. Among the substantive areas of labour law covered in this book are the following: standards on industrial relations; the relationship between international labour law and economic competition; protection of trade unions; prohibitions on enforced and child labour; promotion of equal opportunity and treatment; wage determination and protection; occupational health and safety provisions; foreign and migrant workers; and social security provisions. The presentation demonstrates that these rules and standards, notwithstanding their much-maligned intrinsic legal force, do in fact offer invaluable benchmarks to governments, judiciaries, employers, and trade unions. This new book by Jean-Michel Servais of the ILO is a continuation of the earlier standard work of the same title by Nicolas Valticos, as revised by G.W. von Potobski in 1995.
