Deinert on International Labor Law


Olaf Deinert, Professor at the Georg-August-University Göttingen, has written a book on (German and European) international labor law (Internationales Arbeitsrecht. Deutsches und europäisches Arbeitskollisionsrecht, Tübingen, Mohr Siebeck 2013). The official summary reads as follows:

Olaf Deinert studies all the issues pertaining to applicable law in labor law cases with a foreign element. He gives a detailed description of the conflict of law rules and, in a discussion which includes all fields of labor law, looks at the extent to which applicable law (lex causae) is superseded by overriding mandatory rules of private law and public law. He examines this from the perspective of comparative law, since this is significant for the uniform interpretation of European regulations on international labor law, illustrating as it does the problems involved and serving as an example of how to solve individual issues in the conflict of laws.
