The future of labor law in Europe: The Commission's public consultation
The Commission has launched a debate on the future of labor law in Europe and how it can be modified to help promote economic growth. It has published a "Green Paper" entitled "Modernizing labour law to meet the challenges of the 21st century" (COM(2006) 708 final). You can download the whole thing here.
You've just go to wonder on which planet the Commission lives. It rambles on with neologisms like "flexicurity". Better to click here or read this economics blog regularly.
But enough of that. The interesting thing is that the Commission is venturing far beyond the free movement of workers in its Green Paper.
