1. Analysis of Social Dialogue Systems in Selected EU Countries. The purpose of the part of this project was to work out analytical studies on national systems of social dialogue and collective bargaining in selected European countries (Slovakia, Austria, Poland, France, United Kingdom, Ireland). Based on these national monographs, built according to a pre-defined uniform structure depicting development in recent ten to fifteen years, a general comparison of system components has been drawn, including:
2. Analysis of flexible forms of work in selected EU countries. The aim of the project was to assess, based on the international comparison, a potential for implementing relevant measures leading to an increase in flexibility in the Czech Republic. The countries selected for the international comparison were Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, Slovenia and Slovakia. Labour markets in these countries were analysed, especially with regard to application of flexible forms of work and their effect on employment, or non-employment, labour productivity and enhancement of company competitiveness. Moreover, the legislative regulation of flexible forms of work has been analysed. Findings of a secondary analysis of information sources and literature (both at the general level and for each selected country) had been used for preparing a detailed outline according to which national experts worked out national studies. The subsequent international comparison and evaluation of use of flexible forms of work in the selected countries and their potential implementation in the context of the Czech Republic was carried out using a SWOT analysis. Findings discovered, namely possibilities of their implementation in the Czech context, were put to discussions among representatives of employers, employees and the state. Recommendations and main barriers have been identified as far as the potential implementation of selected proposals in the context of the Czech Republic is concerned.
