Comparative Employment Relations

France, Germany and Britain

by Susan Milner

About this book

Comparative Employment Relations explores the interconnectedness of contemporary European economies by examining employment relations in three key European countries: France, Germany and Britain. It offers an in-depth comparative analysis of the issues that stand at the heart of employment relations: pay and working conditions and how these are determined, power relations between capital and labour, how employment should be regulated, and what role the state plays.

Key benefits:
  • Written in an engaging and accessible style
  • Offers a unique systematic comparison between the three countries
  • Handles complex theoretical concepts in a straightforward and innovative way
This book fills the gap between single country studies of employment relations and more broad-brush multi-country approaches, making it ideal for both undergraduate and postgraduate students studying employment and industrial relations.
