Comparative Workplace Employment Relations
This comprehensive study provides a perceptive portrait of workplace employment relations in Britain and France using comparable data from two large-scale surveys: the British Workplace Employment Relations Survey (WERS) and the French Enquête Relations Professionnelles et Négociations d’Entreprise (REPONSE).

An insightful read for all academics and students of employment, the findings also have implications for practitioners and policy-makers keen to identify and promote “best practice”.
