Employment contract and organization in post-fordism time

Luca Nogler /António Monteiro Fernandes (tradutor)


Contract of employment; work organisation; subordination; employer's powers.


Taking the post-fordism as starting point, the author argues that the subject-matter of the work contract consists of hetero-organised collaboration by the worker. Therefore the worker has not only the obligation to perform his job but also to make his job organizable by the employer.
Being the worker a part of the individual relationship with the employer and a member of a trade union, he is necessarily part of a third dimension that links him to the other workers of the employer. This third dimension does not affect the employer but only those workers who are part of his organization.
