Globalization, demographic changes, increasing numbers of women in the labour market: all of these changes have resulted in working time arrangements which often look vastly different than they did several decades ago. These changes have significant ramifications both economically and sociologically. This volume examines the changing nature of working time in industrialized countries. It analyzes many aspects of this intriguing sphere including: recent trends in working time legislation working time trends in specific enterprises the "work-life balance" With its insightful contributions into labour and the work-related arena, this volume will greatly interest those researchers and academics working on labour economics, employment issues and more specifically working time. The policy ramifications that this book uncovers mean that it will also be a useful reference for policy-makers.
