Show Summary Details


This chapter does three things. First, it compares the British approach to labour market regulation with the approaches of the OECD, on the one hand, and the European Community, on the other. Second, it develops a typology of regulatory strategies for implementing labour market regulation and analyses the major developments described in the book according to this typology. Third, it argues that the role for employment law under the approach adopted by ‘New Labour’ is seen as far more challenging and sophisticated than its role under either the traditional doctrine of collective laissez-faire or the deregulatory policies of its Conservative predecessors.

Keywords: Lisbon strategy; regulatory typologies; role of employment law; light regulation
