Abstract: This unique text develops a framework for understanding the corporate strategy-public policy interface as it relates to human capital management and treats legal systems as factors that must be actively managed in the pursuit of international competitive advantage. Comparative law material is integrated with up-to-minute research to explain the structural characteristics of legal systems around the world, document the variance in labor and employment regulation they have produced, and to assess the opportunities nongovernmental actors have to influence the state's underlying relationship with national IR/HRM systems through political action. In the process, readers are provided with the most comprehensive discussion to date of the roles that transnational, regional, and national institutions play in the evolution of domestic and international labor standards. Key concepts are illustrated with high-profile news events from diverse country settings, offering additional cross-cultural insights into the challenging regulatory environment that multinational enterprises face when managing an international work force.
