With issues such as immigration and globalization triggering social and legislative adjustments in all major legal systems, labor and employment law is particularly susceptible to change. In this special issue of the Comparative Law Year book of International Business, practitioners who are specialized in labor and employment law provide reports on developments in national systems such as Australia, Canada, Chile, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Japan, and New Zealand and examine selected issues in the Czech Republic (termination of employment), Latvia (transfer of undertakings), the United States (ranging from sexual harassment in the work place and the ability of partners and share holders to sue employers to employee dress code), and Ukraine (hiring and dismissal procedures).

The book then provides a basic outline of employment law in each of the 27 Member States. In the three years since the first edition of this book was published in 2007, much more information has become available on employment law in the new accession countries. It is also a timely reminder that the geographical expansion of the EU is not finished. The book reviews the impact of the potential entry of new Members as the EU extends eastwards. The book identifies areas where the law is unified by the enactment of European Directives and examines regional differences which are potential pitfalls for employers with workers in more than one EU State.
