This book, originally published in 1977, is a comparative study of worker participation in France, Belgium, Luxembourg and Britain. The first part of the book treats employee participation in general terms and examines its meaning and scope. The second part then examines the major themes of representative establishment councils and employee representation through an analysis of the relevant statutes and common law of the countries concerned, and by exploring the legal and other problems which have arisen in each. It also examines how these laws are applied in practice and the opinions of those concerned.
