Labour law in Switzerland

Alexandre Berenstein / Pascal Mahon / Jean-Philippe Dunand

Derived from the renowned multi-volume «International Encyclopaedia of Laws», this monograph on labour law in Switzerland not only describes and analyses the legal aspects of labour relations, but also examines labour relations practices and developing trends. It provides a survey of the subject that is both usefully brief and sufficiently detailed to answer most questions likely to arise in any pertinent legal setting. Both individual and collective labour relations are covered in ample detail, with attention to such underlying and pervasive factors employment contracts, suspension of the contracts, dismissal laws and covenant of non-competition, as well as international private law. The authors describe all important details of the law governing hours and wages, benefits, intellectual property implications, trade union activity, employers' associations, workers' participation, collective bargaining, industrial disputes, and much more. Building on a clear overview of labour law and labour relations, the book offers practical guidance on which sound preliminary decisions may be based. It will find a ready readership among lawyers in Switzerland, and academics and researchers will appreciate its value in the study of comparative trends in laws affecting labour and labour relations.
