    In the run-up to this year’s autumn collective bargaining [1] round, a
    controversy arose over the possible re-design of Austria’s traditional wage
    bargaining formula in the future. The debate was further fuelled in August
    2007 when the Federal Minister for Financial Affairs and Vice-Chancellor,
    Wilhelm Molterer of the conservative Austrian People’s Party
    (Österreichische Volkspartei, ÖVP [2]), suggested doubling the current
    number of employees covered by any form of financial participation [3] by
    2010. At present, around 6% of Austria’s employees hold some kind of shares
    in their employer company, and 5% receive productivity-based bonuses or
    profit-related pay. According to the ÖVP’s expectations, the proportion of
    employees covered by financial participation schemes should be raised to 20%
    by the end of the current legislative period in 2010.

    [1]) and the conservative Austrian People’s Party (Österreichische

    The Swedish government has proposed a new form of unemployment insurance,
    which will function rather as an ‘adaptation insurance’. The latest
    budget bill, presented in the autumn of 2007, establishes that unemployed
    persons and people on sick leave will receive less benefit (SE0702029I [1]).
    As part of the plan, the government has announced a number of changes in
    sickness insurance to increase the incentive to return to work.

    Under the terms of Council Directive 92/85/EEC [1] on measures to improve the
    health and safety of pregnant women and of Council Directive 76/207/EEC [2]
    – the so-called Equal Treatment Directive – every woman who is pregnant
    has an entitlement to a period of maternity leave. In addition, she and the
    child’s father are entitled to a period of parental leave. The key issue,
    which arose in the Kiiski v Tampereen kaupunki C-116/06 [3] case, is how
    entitlement to these two periods of leave is exercised, in circumstances
    where agreement has been reached to take one period of leave, which then
    coincides with entitlement to the other period of leave.
