The accession by the European Union to the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) has opened up new possibilities in terms of the constitutional recognition of fundamental rights in the EU. In the field of employment law, it heralds a new procedure for workers and trade unions to challenge EU law against the background of the ECHR. In theoretical terms, this means EU law now goes beyond recognition of fundamental rights as mere general principles of EU law, making the ECHR the 'gold standard' for fundamental social rights. This book focuses on the EU and the interplay between the Strasbourg case law and the case law of the Court of Justice of the EU (CJEU), analyzing the relevance of the ECHR for the protection of workers' rights and for the effective enjoyment of civil and political rights in the employment relationship. Each chapter is written by a prominent European human rights expert and includes analysis of: the case law of the European Court of Human Rights * the equivalent international labor standards within the Council of Europe (in particular, the (Revised) European Social Charter) * the International Labor Organization (in particular, the fundamental rights conventions) * the UN Covenants (in particular, the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and the interpretation of these instruments by competent organs). The book also analyzes the ways in which the CJEU has acknowledged the respective ECHR articles as 'general principles' of EU Law and asks whether the Lisbon Treaty will also warrant a reassessment of the way it has treated conflicts between these 'general principles' and the so-called 'fundamental freedoms.'
