In 1996 the International Labour Organisation (ILO) adopted Recommendation 198, which asks its Members to undertake action to reduce ‘disguised’ employment relationships, with the goal of ensuring that those actually working in an employment relationship are actually given the corresponding legal status. In order to make a substantial contribution to the discussion on these developments a group of noted European labour law scholars has undertaken the research assembled in this book, recommending labour law reforms based on a close examination of existing conditions.

European Social Security Law


On 1 May 2010 a new Coordination Regulation on social security for migrants, Regulation 883/2004, came into force. The complete revision of the coordination regulation meant that an in-depth revision of this handbook on the coordination provisions was essential. This book gives an explanation of the meaning of the provisions of the Regulation, its effects on national case law, its differences with the old Regulation and the case law of the Court of Justice still relevant to these provisions.
A second main part of EU social security law consists of provisions requiring equal treatment of men and women. The book explains the developments in this area and their meaning for present-day social security. A separate part considers social policy measures and the instruments employed in this area.

Dutch social security law


Frans Pennings, Dutch Social Security Law in an International Context. The Hague: Kluwer Law International,  2002. 

This book describes the Dutch system from an international perspective: it discusses the impact of ILO Conventions, Conventions of the Council of Europe and EU regulations and directives on the Dutch social security system. In this way it shows which impact international law has had on the Dutch system. This contributes to more insight of the meaning of international social security law on this particular system, and it also contributes to the general knowledge of the impact international law has on national social security law.

European social policy

Book

Leonard Besselink, Frans Pennings and Sacha Prechal (eds),The Eclipse of the Legality Principle in the European Union, Alphen aan den Rijn: Kluwer Law International, 2011.


Legality is a traditional normative concept to regulate the relationship between those in power and those subjected to that power. The principle of legality protects the citizen against the arbitrary use of power, or, more precisely, it demands a legal basis (which itself must be of a certain standard) to legitimize State action. Is legality under siege in Europe? The authors contributing to this provocative and important book answer this question in the affirmative.
Twenty-one outstanding European legal scholars expose a spectrum of ways in which the traditional legality principle is under pressure because of the creation of new legal orders, including that of the EU, and the interaction between these new orders and that of the State, combined with such factors as expertise driven governance, difficulties of international organizations to meet their objectives due to a lack of adequate powers, and lack of parliamentary control.

European Social Security Law


In the past decades the coordination and equal treatment provisions of the European Union have become of vital importance. This book gives a clear overview of the main lines and main developments of this significant part of EU law.

The complete revision of the coordination regulation meant that an in-depth revision of this handbook on the coordination provisions was essential.

Social responsibility

book

Frans Pennings, Yvonne Konijn and Albertine Veldman (eds.),
Social responsibility in labour relations.
Alphen aan den Rijn: Kluwer Law International, 2008. 

Since 1945, socially moderated market economies have formed the cornerstone of the European socioeconomic model. Now, however due to powerful global economic, political and demographic tendencies tensions between social and economic interests and values are increasing. These developments create an urgent need for answers, actions and measures on the European level. 
Compiled in honour of the major European labour law scholar Teun Jaspers, it encompasses a broad spectrum of analyses and insights by forty-one distinguished contributors from seven countries. Four major tensions are identified: between the European and national level, between fundamental rights and economic freedoms, between workers and employers, and between soft and hard law instruments. Throughout, a comparative approach is emphasized, not only within the EU but also between the EU and China and South Africa.
