      Labour Law and Industrial Relations in Recessionary Times

      The Italian Labour Relations in a Global Economy

      by Author(s): Michele Tiraboschi Editor(s): Series Editors Tayo Fashoyin and Michele Tiraboschi

      This volume includes a number of papers written in English and published in the last fifteen years in which the Italian labour market faced many changes. The book not only provides the international readership with a frame of reference – in both conceptual and legal terms – that helps to appreciate the Italian Labour Law currently in force, but also represents a contribution to moving beyond the self-referential nature of the Italian debate on the reform of labour laws. As such, the book supplies the reform process of the Italian labour market with an international and comparative dimension which – in accordance with the programmatic approach of Marco Biagi – will also feed the debate at the national level.

      Tackling Youth Unemployment

      by Editor(s): Series Editors: Tayo Fashoyin and Michele Tiraboschi; Guest Editors: Morley Gunderson and Francesca Fazio

      Youth have always had higher unemployment rates – about twice or more than the average – as they are usually the last to be hired in an expansion and the first to be let go in a recession. In addition, young people engage in extensive job searching in their early years, and this can imply considerable job churning as both youth and employers look for a good match. This highlights the importance of facilitating the school-to-work transition and having early interventions to assist such youth before negative conditions set in. It also highlights the potential importance of determining those young people most “at risk” of long-term unemployment, and of targeting or streaming them into programmes that will yield the largest incremental net benefits given their characteristics. Unemployed youth without previous work experience often are not eligible for unemployment insurance benefits when they first enter the labour market. When they do receive job search assistance, they often face a bewildering array of programmes that are available to assist them, often with little guidance to help them select the programs that best meet their needs. Consequently, ensuring that today’s youth do not become a “lost generation” is an urgent matter. George Bernard Shaw once said that it is too bad that “youth is wasted on the young”, implying that youth do not realize the opportunities they have as youth and only see them as they get older. There is a danger, however, that many of today’s youth may be never have those opportunities and hence not even see them with hindsight. This book and others in the ADAPT Labour Studies Book-Series are intended to deal with these challenges, to make sure that youth is not wasted on the young.

      The Evolution of the Industrial Relations System in the Italian Shipbuilding Industry

      by Author(s): Alberto Sasco

      This book provides an in-depth analysis of how industrial relations in Italy’s shipbuilding sector have developed over recent years, taking Fincantieri – the leading and most well-known Italian shipbuilding company – as a case study. To this end, an investigation of relevant literature and collective agreements is carried out to understand how national and company-level collective bargaining has evolved over time.

      Labour Regulation in the 21st Century

      In Search of Flexibility and Security

      by Editor(s): Series Editors: Tayo Fashoyin and Michele Tiraboschi; Guest Editors: Tomas Davulis and Daiva Petrylaitė

      The economic crisis has highlighted major shortcomings in the EU flexicurity strategy which, although suitable to tackle structural unemployment in a period of economic growth, it proved unable to stand the impact of the recession, which requires specific measures to maintain employment. Against this background, the authors of the present papers, which were presented at the International Scientific Conference “Labour Market of the 21st Century: Looking for Flexibility and Security”, on the occasion of the 370th Anniversary of the establishment of Vilnius University’s Faculty of Law, that took place on 12–14 May 2011, investigate the development of labour regulation in the 21st century, with particular reference to the relation between flexibility and security and to the need to strike a balance between these two elements. The contributions address the issue in a comparative and transnational perspective and provide some insights into the development of national models of flexibility and social security.

      Mitbestimmungsgesetz und Drittelbeteiligungsgesetz

      by Thomas Raiser, Rüdiger Veil, Matthias Jacobs

      Der Kommentar bietet eine wissenschaftlich fundierte Anleitung für alle Rechtsanwälte und Unternehmensjuristen, Aufsichtsratsmitglieder, Unternehmensleiter, Wahlvorstände, Gewerkschaftsvertreter, Anteilseigner und Arbeitnehmer. Übersichtlichkeit, praxisnahe Argumentation und eine verständliche Sprache zeichnen das Werk aus. Ziel der Autoren ist es, die schwierige Dialektik des Mitbestimmungsgesetzes zwischen Parität der Gruppen im Aufsichtsrat und Übergewicht der Anteilseignerseite auszuleuchten und auf ein gesichertes rechtliches Fundament zu stellen. Die Neuauflage bringt das Werk auf den aktuellen Stand von Rechtsprechung, Literatur und Gesetzgebung (inkl. der Neuerungen durch die neue Bundesregierung).
