    Abstract

    Information provision is an important part of all mechanisms which give employees voice atwork. This paper considers the law on information disclosure for joint consultation andcollective bargaining in three countries, Germany, France, and the UK, chosen for theirdistinctive legal and institutional arrangements, within a common European Union context. Itis argued that there is coherence between the law and institutions in Germany; in France,despite extensive legal support for information provision, the law and institutions complementone another less; in the UK, there are contradictory approaches and new dilemmasconfronting the traditional system. Although European Directives harmonise statutoryminima, there are few signs of common disclosure practice emerging across the threecountries.
