The end of national models in employment relations?
The erosion of a number of national systems of employment relations, and the evidence fromlarge scale workplace surveys has brought attention to the considerable diversity ofemployment systems within major economies. This essay applies the theory of evolutionarygames to explain the diffusion of different employment systems within national economies,and how they interact with established sectoral and national level institutions. This also helpsto explain potential tipping points in their expansion and retreat. Evidence to support theargument is taken from the British and French workplace employment relations surveys andthe European Working Conditions Survey.
