The future of labor relations and labor law, affected by globalization and internationalization processes is a matter which receives much attention, not only in the scientific legal community, but also wider public. For this reason, there is an increasing number of studies and research in this field, especially in the context of erosion of national prerogatives and decentralization of cross-border economic activities. Neo-liberal globalization, transnational corporations and the issue of labor and social standards have opened a variety of problems on global, European and national levels. The European Union endeavors in the recent years to deal with market challenges, posed particularly in the labor market, by positive, as well as negative harmonization.
