 Economic Redundancy: The Paradoxes of Exemplary Protection

Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the role of protection against economic redundancy in preventing unemployment. It is argued that despite highly protective, collective legal mechanisms, those most at risk are the first victims of economic redundancy. Policies aimed at providing security for vulnerable populations should combine active and passive measures in the best possible way, and establish support measures that are suited to the target population.

Keywords: economic redundancy; unemployment; protection; paradox; employees
