Scientific Disciplinary Sector (SSD)
IUS/07 - LABOUR LAW
1° periodo lezioni (1A), 1° periodo lezioni (1B)
The course aims at providing the necessary conceptual, normative and methodological bases for ana-lysing and understanding the system of labour law and industrial relations. The purpose of the course is to make the student capable of assessing the issues arising in the implementation of the theoretical and regulatory framework, through correct reasoning and arguments.
The labour law course aims at analysing labour law in a broad sense, trade unions law included, comparing public sector and private sector rules. The system of regulatory sources: historical development, in the EU and domestic legal systems. Pre-Constitutional and Post-Constitutional phases, impact of the EU sources. Particular attention is paid to the legal regulation of the individual employment contract and to the relationships between labour law and the market as well as to the so called “administration” of the labour relationship. The historical overview of the whole discipline, strike-related rules included, is followed by the analysis of the articulated system of sources of labour law, with particular regard to statutory law, so called collective autonomy sources, collective agreements and concertation systems between social partners. Particular attention is paid to the trade unions topic in the public sector.
