Labor Law and Practice in Great Britain.
This 4-part report is one of a series prepared to provide background material for United States businessmen and others employing local workers abroad, trade union and labor specialists, consulting economists, and students. The data used were obtained from personnel in London's Departments of Employment, Health and Social Security, the Commission on Industrial Relations from British trade union officials, persons in the Ministry of Health and Social Services, and the Ministry of Community Relations in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Contained in the report are: (1) an overview of the geographical, political, cultural, social, and economic factors characteristic of the country and its workers as well as its manpower resources, (2) a discussion of governmentally instituted labor laws and their effect on labor, (3) a detailed summary of existing problems in labor management and industrial relations, and (4) a description of existing employment conditions in Great Britain. A selected bibliography, tables, charts, and established labor laws supplement the text. (Author/SN)
