[Excerpt] This report – as part of a long-standing series of annual reviews – describes major developments in working life during 2015 (and early 2016, if important developments happened during the process of drafting). It collates information based on reports from Eurofound’s network of European correspondents. Over the course of 2015, more than 80 national experts in the fields of industrial relations and working conditions across all EU Member States and Norway reported on a quarterly basis to EurWORK, the European Observatory of Working Life. These reports focused on major developments regarding the regulation of the employment relationship across several key themes. They looked at the actors involved, processes and outcomes. In addition, correspondents also provided more in-depth national level articles to EurWORK, which aimed to facilitate a deeper understanding of national developments for a European audience.
