AUSTRIA
LABOUR CONSTITUTION ACT
ARBEITSVERFASSUNGSGESETZ

Name of the central legislative enactment in Austrian labour law, widely referred to by the initials ArbVG, which regulates the works constitution. Since its second part regulates collective bargaining, the Labour Constitution Act is of wider scope than Germany's Betriebsverfassungsgesetz (Works Constitution Act) and to use the latter name in English for the Austrian Act, implying equivalence, is misleading.
