Item description for EUropean Labour Law and Social Policy by Alan Neal...
This is the most comprehensive collection of primary source materials in the labour law and social policy of the European Community ever gathered together in one volume. With documents and decisions up to May 1st, 1999, when the Treaty of Amsterdam came into force, it includes: + key legislative instruments in EC labour law and social policy; + significant associated policy documents produced by the Commission; and + important relevant decisions of the European Court of Justice. This enormously valuable material is organised by reference to specific Directives and Treaty provisions. Thus (for example) the progress of a specific Action Programme may be followed through legislature, Commission and Court to reveal a complete overview of its development since the Community came into being. The author follows this analytic procedure for all major areas of labour law and social policy, including equality of treatment for men and women, equal pay, and working conditions. He also takes into account the amendments and consolidations undertaken in the wake of the intergovernmental conference that accompanied the introduction of the new arrangements under the Treaty of Amsterdam. Easy access to the book's wealth of information is provided by a reference system built on a series of tables presented at the front of the volume. These include two very helpful `tables of equivalence' that facilitate the process of converting former Treaty article numbers to the article numbers now in force under the amended and renumbered Treaty of Amsterdam. Advocates, judges, policymakers, scholars and students will all appreciate this long-awaited essential sourcebook in EC labour law and social policy.

More About Alan Neal
In contrast to all of my friends, I was always a go-with-the-flow kind of person. In junior high, my buddies were planning their lives into their 20's and 30's while I was still trying to decide between "wood shop" and "Spanish" for my elective.
My interests came together during my college years...
I appreciated the study of psychology because so many of us have a tendency to overcomplicate the simple and muddle our intents.
I loved writing, especially the rule of knowing your topic and audience. I thought it was freeing, despite my elementary school experience of advancing from pencil to pen. That day marked the introduction of new paper. Gone were the grainy tan sheets. They were replaced by glossy white paper with delicate sky blue lines. With that paper came the dictum: "No cross-outs!" Mistakes were not allowed. The writing had to be perfect. I have no research to support it, but I believe this ridiculous rule ruined many a student writer and helped cement the fear of not being perfect.
Lastly, I had an affinity for technology. I didn't start with programming because of my experience in algebra class. My teacher, a very kind man, couldn't help but laughing at me in front of my fellow students. That's how bad I was. I laughed, too. Algebra just made no sense to me. But, I had another focus: a fascination with trying to interpret people's intent. I wanted to design software that took that intent into account.
My career spanned several decades. In the first half, I developed designs for computer interactions that are still in use today. If you operate a computer or similar electronic device, which I suppose you must if you're reading this, then you have likely encountered my designs.
I applied similar principles to facilitating groups and individuals: addressing people's interactions and intentions with one another and within themselves. Just as it is to push a button and get the unexpected or unintended, so it is with many aspects of our lives. Conversations don't go as planned. Life doesn't work as we hope. People misunderstand us. And, we misunderstand them.
I enjoy a simple life. Simple pleasures. Two rescue dogs. Chocolate. Good bread and cheese. When I was younger, I laughed about how easily my parents were pleased. As I grew older, I began to appreciate that blessing. What I hope to do, whenever given the chance, is help people discover their own simple pleasures, their own blessings, and their own calm.

The bible on EU labour law and social policy Apr 16, 2000
For anybody interested in the "nuts and bolts" of EU legislation and case law relating to Community labour law and social policy this book is a must. To understand the ongoing social dialogue at European level is even for experts hard to master. The author has managed to put together key material, both for the law student and the practitioner, to produce a comprehensive and informative sourcebook which makes compulsory reading for anybody interested in this field.
