This paper examines the role of the European Union (EU) in influencing the development of employment relationships in the Member States. An analysis of the formation and development of EU legislation and policies is provided that identifies key players in the processes by which the EU exerts influence over developments in employment relationships. The differential impact of EU actions on organisations is considered with reference to location in Member States and by sector.
