EFFECT OF LABOUR LAW REGULATION ON THE EMPLOYMENT
RELATIONS BASED ON THE CONNECTION BETWEEN SOCIAL RIGHTS AND

In the world of employment, we can find several aspects that have effect on the labour market.
Labour market cannot be independent from the legal regulation of employment; moreover – according
to the tendencies – labour market processes basically define the role of labour law. A fundamental
difference can be observed between the approach of Anglo-Saxon countries and researchers and the
viewpoint of the continental law systems. In this paper the emphasized question is analysed through
these two different approaches according to the following premise: the Anglo-Saxon legal thinking
defining the current development of labour law bears significant differences related to the labour law
regulation – which means the direct regulation of labour market – and to the legal guarantees behind
employment as well. From the viewpoint of the labour market two main questions are examined in this
paper: on the one hand, the expected and necessary level and method of public intervention in
connection with social rights, and on the other hand the deepness of the intervention of labour law into
the social relations driven by the market.
Keywords: reflexive labour law, human capital, flexicurity, ability-theory, soft law tools.

collisions by interpreting economic, labour
