Overview

In recent decades enterprises worldwide have reaped the advantages of hiring employees on a contractual fixed-term basis, thus derogating from their traditional participation in the social protection of workers and insulating themselves from legal liability for unjust dismissal. A broad spectrum of effectiveness has emerged in this development, as different countries have adopted varying measures to regulate the conditions under which fixedterm employment contracts are written, applied, and interpreted. This important book
- which reprints papers submitted to the 10th Comparative Labour Law Seminar of the
Japan Institute for Labour Policy and Training held in Tokyo on 8 and 9 March 2010 -
details the regulatory approaches to fixed-term contracts in major industrial jurisdictions in Asia and Europe, providing an opportunity to explore normative directions for labour law and policy in the age of a diversified workforce.
