Since worldwide unification of Labour Law doesn’t exist, each country has its own regime that not only applies to employment relations within their territory (territorial scope) but may also have an extra-territorial scope. The extra-territorial scope of Labour Law regimes combined with the fact that national Labour Law regimes differ widely from each other, raises the question about which rules apply to an international employment relationship, where various countries are involved. The answer to this question is not only essential for implementing the assignment contract and cost calculation, but also when one of the parties wishes to terminate the employment or when a labour dispute arises. In this part of the course, Alain Camonier will explain what is meant by the international scope of national Labour Law.
