La variabilité du droit du travail

Abstract : The study of the variability of labour law consists of measuring the ability of this discipline to transform itself according to economic, social and political development. In this discipline, the legislator tries to meet the expectations of French society, but his initiatives remain particularly ineffectual to achieve full employment. From the 1980s, he was blamed for troubles questioning his legitimacy to balance the power struggle that occurs within the employment relationship. In general, rulemaking methods are lead astray causing a change of the role of the players: the government exceeds its field of expertise, the judge tries to create standards, in case the legislator himself does not encourage management and labour to negotiate. Work contract is not spared from this variability of norm making modes. This makes the implementation of labour law rules difficult. Each player is in the position to modify the area of public policy. The conventional hierarchy of norms, already hindered by the appearance of the favour principle, is even overturned by the conclusion of socalled derogation agreements. Contrary to such a pyramid system in decline, another legal system would appear and consider the effects of economic globalization. From now on the company is more reconsidered in its international, and especially financial, dimension. However, an exclusively global approach is not sufficient to reflect the local corporate culture. Awareness appeared for example directed at a stronger liability of the employer and its employees, as well as the States who are encouraged to enforce uropean and international standards. Hence the temptation to conceptualize the marshalling of labour law rules under the term "glocalization".
