Experiences with joint and several liabilities as measures to enforce general applicable agreements
As of 1 January 2010 joint liability for salaries, etc. was introduced in areas where collective agreements have been made generally applicable. The purpose of this project is to evaluate this scheme. Key issues will be the extent of cases in which the joint liability has been applied, how these issues have evolved, the actors’ experiences with and economic consequences of the scheme. We will also examine whether shop stewards perceive to have the necessary knowledge and resources to assist union members.
