Abstract

For some time now the 1977 EU Acquired Rights Directive (ARD) has not only attracted much criticism from Member States' governments, but also suffered from a barrage of rulings from the European Court of Justice (ECJ). Consequently, the Commission has decided to revise the Directive.

This Paper examines the content of the revised Directive. It assesses the effect of the proposed revisions, as well as the views of the Commission, Member States, the social partners and the EU's institutions. In particular, it analyzes the British response. More significantly, this paper will analyze how this piece of legislation advances EU Social Policy, if at all.
