The book is arranged as country chapters and there are 25 countries that are covered. Each chapter has important issues that affect employees in circumstances their employer faces financial difficulty or becomes insolvent.
The areas covered include, how an employee is defined for the purpose of formal insolvency, their entitlements in insolvency, priority of treatment, personal liability of directors in respect of unpaid wages, statutory safety nets in place, and in the event an insolvent company is sold the acquirers responsibilities in respect of employee claims.
