about

Part-time work has been the fastest growing of all forms of "non-standard" work. All member states of the European Union have given increasing attention to its regulation over the past quarter century. This book examines the influence of European Community rules and procedures on the development by member states of their policies towards part-time employment. It consists of an analysis of the relevant EU rules, a consideration of the national policies and the impact upon them of the EU provisions, as well as a suggested framework for the identification of these influences.
