About this lecture:
In recent years, labour law has been going through a period of deep introspection. Some commentators have gone so far as to pronounce the subject dead. One reason for the crisis is the realisation that labour law can exacerbate divisions between different groups in the workforce: between the employed and the unemployed, between those with stable jobs and those with 'atypical' jobs, between local workers and migrant workers, and so on. The 'interests of labour' are not, in reality, a unified set of interests to be pitted against those of capital. Whilst other writers are beginning to explore this set of issues at the policy level, my aim in this lecture is to consider how the law addresses conflicts between workers on particular occasions and in particular workplaces, and to begin the task of mapping out this neglected dimension of the subject on a more practical level.
