Examining the Labour Law Dimension of Human Rights

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


This paper sought to describe the ways in which the introduction of the Human Rights Act 1998 have impacted upon labour law in the UK and whether there were any commonalities with the way in which the South African courts have deployed the Bill of Rights in the South African Constitution in the context of labour law. The intention was to ask if and how the Scots and South African experiences might make a modest contribution to the debate on the merits and demerits of the constitutionalisation of labour rights which rages in the academy and beyond.
