Growing Conflict Between European Uniformity and National Flexibility : The Case of Danish Flexicurity - image 1 of 1

About this item

During the last couple of years, the Danish flexicurity model has gained attention from the European Union as a successful way of combining a flexible labor law regime with a well-developed social protection of employees. However, the Danish labor market model is itself under pressure from an increasing EU harmonization in terms of pay and working conditions. This book examines the pressure from EU directives on the flexible Danish labor law system. Additionally, it looks at the case law developed by the European Court of Justice, emphasizing the increasing tension between the flexibility that the directives aim to provide to Member States and the uniform interpretation and application of the directives enforced by the case law of the Court. [Subject: Danish Law, European Law, Employment Law, Comparative Law]
