Routledge Research in Employment Relations: Employment Relations under Coalition Government : The UK Experience, 2010-2015 37 (2016, Hardcover) book PDF, DJV, EPUB
Drawing on a wide range of up-to-date research, Employment Relations under Coalition Government critically examines developments in UK employment relations during the period of Conservative-Liberal Democrat government between 2010 and 2015, against the background of the 2007-08 financial crisis, subsequent economic recession and in the context of the primacy accorded to neo-liberal austerity. Contributions cover a series of important and relevant topics in a rigorous, yet accessible manner: labour market change and the rise of zero-hours contracts and other forms of precarious employment; policy development relating to young people's employment; the coalition's welfare-to-work agenda; its programme of employment law reform and its approach to workplace equality and health and safety; labour migration; the experience of the trade unions under the coalition and their responses; and developments in employment relations in the public services. This book addresses the broader issues relating to the coalition period, such as the implications of political and regulatory change for employment relations, including the greater devolution of powers to Scotland and Wales, and locates UK developments in comparative perspective. The book concludes with an assessment of the prospects for employment relations in the aftermath of the May 2015 Conservatives election victory., The key purpose of Work and Employment Relations under Coalition Government is to examine how work and employment relations have fared under the coalition during its period in office. Between 1997 and 2010 Tony Blair and Gordon Brown s Labour governments instituted some major changes to work and employment relations, not least a marked increase in the breadth and depth of individual legal rights and protections at work. Under the coalition government, however, and in the context of the aftermath and effects of the 2007-08 financial crisis and subsequent economic recession, there has been a notable shift in emphasis, perhaps most evident in efforts to reduce the regulatory burden on employers. Work and Employment Relations under Coalition Government will significantly add to our existing knowledge of work and employment relations by focusing on key developments under the coalition it took office in 2010; not only by examining the principal motivations, main features and key implications of its policy interventions, but also by placing them in a broader political, economic and comparative context, and by drawing attention to the notable degree of opposition they have frequently generated. In addition to focusing on key areas of work and employment relations policy under the coalition, there will also be a focus on relevant economic, employment and labour market developments. Importantly, as well as providing an overview of key policy issues and developments, chapters in Work and Employment Relations under Coalition Government will also dwell on the motivations and implications of the coalition s approach as appropriate. Additionally, the book will draw on developments in the UK under the coalition to elaborate upon some of the implications which arise for work and employment relations in a broader, international and comparative context."
