In 2008 the Workers' Participation Unit of the ETUI started researching and collecting EWC-related court cases and included this collection into the existing database of European Works Councils (www.ewcdb.eu/court-cases). The jurisprudence database grown since and currently contains a collection of more than 70 various court cases and numerous articles. All of them are linked to EWCs registered in the EWC database and searchable via an efficient search engine.
This section features information related to the EWC and SE-related jurisprudence.
For all questions or suggestions in this regard please contact Marcus Meyer, Senior Researcher, ETUI.
We welcome any tips or information about the relevant court judgements/cases.
You can find a collection (including summaries) of the most important law cases of the European Court of Justice and of national courts in the European Works Council Database of the ETUI. Click here
