Securing Job-to-Job transitions in the labour market

A comparative study of employment security systems in European Countries

By Irmgard Borghouts-Van De Pas

Companies change their organization in response to crises, globalization, and increasing competition. Restructuring processes take place and part of the workforce is forced to find other employment. This book explores and explains employment security systems with a specific focus on job-to-job transitions for redundant employees in four European countries: Sweden, the United Kingdom, Austria, and Spain. In addition, it addresses possible lessons the Netherlands can learn from these foreign job-to-job arrangements. This multidisciplinary book will be of special interest to members of the European Commission, policymakers, and academics, as well as to students in the fields of labor market, social security, industrial relations, labor law, labor economics, and sociology.
