  • Gender differences in quality of work and life

    The project ‘QUALITY of life in a changing Europe [1]’ (2006–2009) has been conducted in eight countries – Bulgaria, Finland, Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands, Portugal, Sweden and the UK – under the European Community Sixth Framework Programme. Based on quantitative and qualitative research, the project aimed to examine how European citizens living in different welfare state regimes evaluate the quality of their lives and workplaces. The surveys conducted within the project put special focus on the gender dimension of the quality of work [2] and life. The study findings are summarised in the reports ‘Differences between men and women in work quality [3]’ and ‘Differences between men and women in quality of life (224Kb PDF) [4]’.

  • Role of mediation in workplace conflict resolution

    A study commissioned by the Association of Free Trade Unions of Slovenia (Zveza svobodnih sindikatov Slovenije, ZSSS [1]) and conducted by an interdisciplinary research team at the University of Ljublijana [2] in 2008 and 2009 focuses on the role of mediation as a method for resolving disputes in companies and for achieving equal opportunities [3] in the Slovenian labour market. Mediation is an amicable method of resolving disputes based on the principles of equality and mutual respect for differences, ensuring a safe and non-discriminatory work environment.

  • New liability rules to tackle ‘social fraud’ in construction

    In recent years, the Austrian legislator has endorsed a series of laws seeking to tackle the problem of social security [1] fraud in companies – particularly in the construction sector. For instance, on 1 March 2005, the Social Fraud Bill (/Sozialbetrugsgesetz/, SozBeG) came into effect, which extended the legal provisions of criminal law concerning organised tax and social fraud (*AT0506201N* [2]). Moreover, in 2007, a legal obligation was introduced for employers to register their employees with the relevant social insurance institutions before the commencement of work. This legal initiative sought to combat fraudulent practices in companies, whereby employers had failed to register some of their staff in time for the sole purpose of evading taxes and social insurance contributions (*AT0705019I* [3]).
