How the future of work can work for the workers

Marc De Vos

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


As the world of work is undergoing the substantial transformation known as ‘Work 4.0’, this chapter explores and develops possible avenues for a corresponding transformation of labour law. It begins by identifying the underlying transformational trends, to argue priorities for transversal career management, sustained labour quality focus, and continuous and integrated talent development. Adopting a long-term view, it develops a possible future of labour law as a ‘law on persons’ beyond employment status. It concludes by stressing and illustrating how the future of labour and labour law is about much more than law.
