Product Description:

The clear objective of European law in relation to redundancyand—defined in the consolidated Collective Redundancies Directive (98/59) as and#8216;dismissals effected by an employer for one or more reasons not related to the individual workers concernedand’and—is to promote industrial democracy. Thus, employees enjoy a consultative role in the decision making process, and a level of protection is provided to employees who are displaced. However, specific legal criteria vary when it comes to restructuring companies in different countries.

This book provides an overview of the relevant legislation regarding redundancy schemes in each of the 27 EU Member States, as well as Russia and Switzerland. Following an introductory chapter describing the European directive regarding mass redundancies, 29 country reports written by one or more experienced employment lawyers from the respective country offer overviews of relevant national legislation and case law regarding timing, information and consultation, risks, and costs, as well as practical legal guidance.

The individual reports cover how each jurisdiction deals with such practical matters as the following:

and#8226; freedom of management to organise and to reorganise businesses;

and#8226; enhancement of employee rights;

and#8226; voluntary redundancy and voluntary early retirement programmes;

and#8226; circumstances where an employer is proposing to effect a change of terms and conditions of employment;

and#8226; the and#8216;ten percent ruleand’ model (comparing the number of redundancies proposed to the total workforce) versus the and#8216;aggregateand’ model (which focuses on the total number of redundancies to be declared);

and#8226; definition of and#8216;establishmentand’ for the purpose of applying the consultation threshold;

and#8226; exceptions (e.g., fixed term contracts, contracts which are task related and where the task has been completed, public administrative bodies, establishments governed by public law, and the crews of sea-going vessels);

and#8226; details of local law provisions concerning employee representativesand—local Works Councils, Comitand#233;s dand’Entreprise, trade unions, or groups specifically elected for the purpose;

and#8226; what must be covered in the consultation agenda;

and#8226; obligation on the part of the employer to make all relevant information availableand—e.g., reasons, number of categories of workers to be made redundant, number and categories of workers normally employed, period over which redundancies are to be effected, selection criteria, and payment; and

and#8226; notification to the relevant and#8216;competent public authorityand’ of the impending redundancies.

This book will be enormously helpful to all who deal professionally with employment law in one or more countries in Europe. Legal counsel as well as HR directors will find it of great value in numerous situations that arise constantly in the day-to-day conduct of business.

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.

Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
