(When you click on the image you will see the contents of EELC 2012, no 2.)
Specialising in employment law jurisprudence from other EU-member states will have a positive influence on your case
All over Europe employment lawsuits are being fought and courts are delivering judgments on a daily basis. Lawyers tend to read only the judgments of their own country’s courts, and therefore as a rule remain unaware of how courts in other jurisdictions interpret and apply legal doctrines that are (more or less) common to all of Europe. To give but one small example, lawyers in The Netherlands are in need of guidance on what constitute technical, economic and organisational (ETO) reasons as provided in Article 4(1) of the Acquired Rights Directive 2001/23, on which question the ECJ has not yet pronounced usefully and on which there is very little Dutch precedent. Knowing that the courts in England and Wales have issued a fair number of judgments on ETO would surely be helpful for Dutch lawyers.
EELC is a magazine with information on national judgments that are of interest to employment specialists in the European member states. The publication focuses on national judgments of EU member states but also contains brief references to recent ECJ and ECtHR cases.
Why you should read EELC :
- First and only Journal with summaries of European Employment Law Cases along with commentaries from the jurisdictions in question and comments from other jurisdictions
- Brief references to recent ECJ (pending) cases
- Summaries of ECtHR cases
- This EELC website provides access to the (untranslated) full text of the judgments
The Academic editors will see to the quality of the submissions and will add an overall perspective. This Academic Board currently consists of employment law professors and other university representatives from 18 jurisdictions.

Why you should read EELC according to our readers:
"An intrepid move to assist practitioners in the employment law arena around Europe in finding information on employment law cases decided in the various European countries. The EELC concept really adds value. Finally, employment law goes transnational." Prof. mr. Leonard G. Verburg, Radboud University Nijmegen, partner Allen & Overy Amsterdam
“Lawyers are often unaware of how courts in other jurisdictions interpret and apply legal doctrines in the area of employment law. This is a missed opportunity because interpretations in one jurisdiction may be useful to other jurisdictions as well. After all, the same European Directives must be applied. EELC is also useful to judges because they can they can follow the same line of thought" Mr. Gerrard Boot, Judge in Amsterdam
The European Employment Lawyers Association (EELA) is convinced there's a need for a magazine like EELC. All members will have free access to the digital issues, soon to be published at their site.
