The research analyses the social dimension of cross-border company mobility within Europe. Cross-border mergers, divisions and seat transfers may have significant implications for employees rights to information and consultation, board-level representation and protection against (collective) dismissals. The project seeks to establish to what extent the before-and-after-principle, which requires that employees rights that exist prior to a cross-border company transaction are retained thereafter, is respected in practice.
