The chapter is one of five explaining the 'horizontal issues' or thematic issues in a comparative study of the labour laws of 15 countries. This chapter explains the role of the common law (or judge-made) law in common law jurisdictions, and the influence it has had on the development of fundamental concepts in labour law. It also explains the principles of statutory interpretation that govern the complex relationship between judge-made and statutory law, in this statute-heavy field of law.
