The author reflects on the relevance of the green paper published by the European Commission on modernizing labor law to meet the challenges of the 21st century. He explains the meaning of the term, flexicurity, which refers to the adaptation of employment legislation to promote flexibility combined with employment security and reduce labor market segmentation. In his opinion, the paper seeks justification for the commission to renew its influence on the employment legislative process.
