Viking, Laval and Beyond

Edited by: Mark Freedland, Jeremias Prassl

EU Law in the Member States is a new series dedicated to exploring the impact of landmark judgments of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU), as well as the secondary legislation in legal systems across the European Union. Each book in this series will be written by a team of EU lawyers and experts in the relevant fields, bringing together perspectives from a wide range of different Member States in order to compare and analyze the effect of EU law on domestic legal systems and practice. The first volume focuses on the uneasy relationship between the economic freedoms enshrined in Articles 49 and 56 TFEU and workers' right to take collective action. This conflict has been at the forefront of EU labor law since the CJEU's much-discussed decisions in C-438/05 Viking and C-341/04 Laval, as well as the Commission's more recent attempts at legislative reforms in the failed Monti II Regulation. The book explores judicial and legislative responses to these measures in ten Member States, and it finds that the impact on domestic legal systems has been much more varied than traditional accounts of EU law would suggest.
