Popular Abstract in Swedish

Sedan Sverige för ungefär tio år sedan blev medlem av Europeiska unionen, änd-rades svensk arbetsrätt så att arbetstagare i vissa fall har en rätt att välja att följa med en verksamhet som övergår till en ny arbetsgivare. Något nytt anställningsavtal skall inte anses ha träffats. De arbetstagare som berörs av verksamhetsövergången har dessutom ett skydd mot att bli uppsagda.

Det är dock inte vid alla verksamhetsövergångar som arbetstagaren har detta skydd. I fokus för Anställningen vid verksamhetsövergång står frågan när skyddsreglerna skall vara tillämpliga. Dessutom behandlas frågan, vilka de rättsliga konsekvenserna blir, när regleringen tillämplig. Analysen av regelverket tar sin utgångspunkt i det ekonomiska system som ser säkerställandet av hinder mot snedvridning av konkurrensen som en viktig grundbult i EU-rätten.



De svenska bestämmelserna bygger på det så kallade överlåtelsedirektivet. Den centrala bestämmelsen som implementerar detta EU-direktiv återfinns i anställningsskyddslagen. I denna bok behandlas denna reglering, som alltså baseras på en automatisk övergång av anställningen, och framställningen ger stort utrymme åt EU-domstolens rikhaltiga praxis på området och Arbetsdomstolens avgöranden.

Abstract
When Sweden in 1995 became a member of the European Union, Swedish labour legislation was enacted on the safeguarding of employees’ rights in the event of transfer of undertaking. These Swedish rules and regulations are examined. EU law and national law form two parallel systems, which between themselves arrange the legal sources hierarchically, and, as a result of that, the Member States have transferred both legislative and adjudication competences to the institutions of the European Union. Therefore also EU legislation must be noted, especially Council Directive 2001/23/EC and its predecessor Counsil Directive 77/187/EEC, the 1977 and 2001 transfer of undertakings directive, and the case law concerning these directives.

When Sweden in 1995 became a member of the European Union, Swedish labour legislation was enacted on the safeguarding of employees’ rights in the event of transfer of undertaking. These Swedish rules and regulations are examined. EU law and national law form two parallel systems, which between themselves arrange the legal sources hierarchically, and, as a result of that, the Member States have transferred both legislative and adjudication competences to the institutions of the European Union. Therefore also EU legislation must be noted, especially Council Directive 2001/23/EC and its predecessor Counsil Directive 77/187/EEC, the 1977 and 2001 transfer of undertakings directive, and the case law concerning these directives.



The main examination of substantive law deals with the question when the implementation rules of the transfer of undertakings directive are applicable and, to some extent, the legal effects of the applicability of the directive. The overall question concerning the directive's applicability is divided into three sub-questions. The first sub-question examines the objects that are covered by the directive and the forms of transfer to which the directive is applicable. the second sub-question concerns the significance of retained identity under the directive, and the third deals with the legal effects of the directive's rules.



Automatic transfer of employment is quite new and therefore focussed as well as the provisions on prohibition of dismissals and on continuation of employment of the transferee. (Less)
