Introduction

A Comparative Study

Gordon Anderson, Douglas Brodie and Joellen Riley

The introduction takes up David Marsden’s argument that the rise of the modern business enterprise relies on two great innovations: limited liability and the contract of employment. It outlines the authors’ objective to analyse the character of the contract of employment in the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand and to examine the interrelationship between the contract of employment and the political, economic and social dynamics that have shaped the employment environment in each jurisdiction. Keywords comparative employment law, contract of employment

Industry codes of conduct increasingly play a role in regulating B2B and B2C relationships and have, as such, become part of the contractual regulatory space. Nonetheless, the relationship between these codes and contract law as the traditional way of regulating private relationships still remains opaque. This chapter sheds some light on the relation between industry codes and contract law by addressing one of the questions that the regulatory role of these codes raises: is there a need for a framework for industry codes in contract law? Building on an analysis of the practice of industry codes, their interaction with the traditional foundations of contract law and a number of Dutch contract law cases involving industry codes, it is argued that contract law itself already includes leads to overcome the conceptual challenges that industry codes pose and to give further shape to the relationship between these codes and contract law. Keywords: industry codes of conduct, foundations of contract law, regulation, B2B and B2C relationships
