Abstract

What is labour law? The answer to this question has challenged scholars since the birth of the discipline at the beginning of the twentieth century. Up until the 1980s, there was a broad consensus that labour law primarily served a protective purpose. This approach stressed the role of labour laws in correcting the imbalance in bargaining power inherent within the employment relationship.
