Neoliberalism Workshop: Contradictions in liberal reforms: The regulation of labour subcontracting
Guy Mundlak, Professor at The Buchmann Faculty of Law, Tel Aviv University
Professor Mundlak outlines the legal problems, and the principle of residual responsibility associated with the triangular relationship between the worker, the (sub-contracted) provider of the service and the direct employer.
Although conducted as empirical research on temporary and sub-contracted workers in Israel, he argues that the study’s findings could be seen as a prophecy of what is currently happening worldwide in terms of employer liability and workers’ rights.
This talk was given at the Neoliberalism, Employment and the Law Workshop at Wolfson College, Oxford, hosted by the Foundation for Law, Justice and Society in November 2015.
