Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0720120675, Hardcover)The recession of the 70's and 80's focussed the attention of a generation of politicians, policy-makers and academics, as well as popular culture, on the nature and significance of work shortages. This book examines the particular problem of how to regulate and compensate for partial unemployment resulting from short-time working and lay-offs, whether caused by economic recession, strikes, mechanical failure or natural disasters. It looks at the interaction of different forms of legal regulation of short-time working compensation. New forms of state regulation are examined and the effects of employment subsidy schemes on traditional industrial relations practice. The British experience is compared with that in Europe and the USA and the final chapter suggests new solutions utilizing work sharing and equal opportunities principles.
