Learning Objectives

The course aims to provide students with the fundamental tools for understanding international and EU labor law. The knowledge of these subjects is crucial to be fully aware of the interactions between different legal systems, with the related multi-level protection of the worker's rights. Given the particular importance of the issue of the protection of the health and safety of workers in this degree course, a particular attention will be paid to the community origin of the existing prevention discipline. Its knowledge is essential in order to carry out competently professional activities related to the law of safety at work.

The course’s method, which combines traditional teaching (lectures) with innovative-experimental techniques (Flipped Learning and use of the Moodle-blended learning platform), is aimed at developing both basic and higher cognitive knowledge.  In this way, through the direct debate with the teacher and the work in the classroom (Teaching Working Class), we want to encourage the learning process through a more student’s effective involvement and a better organization of the teaching materials, to facilitate the knowledge processes during the course’s development.

Program

After providing an introduction of the institutions of the International Labor Organisation (ILO) and the European Union, the course addresses the main tools available to the ILO and the fundamental sources and principles of EU social law, with a specific focus on issues concerning the protection of health and safety in the workplace, related to the aspects concerning working hours and the so-called atypical employment relationships. The course will be also considering three relevant issues regarding the European Union labour law, such as discrimination, business crises and minimum salary, focusing on their impact on the internal legal system. Finally, the delicate relations between the international legal system, the Community legal system and the Italian legal system will be examined by using, for example, the analysis of the recent case law of the Constitutional Court. In particular, after the presentation of the course, the topics will be addressed as follows:

1. The International Labour Organisation (ILO) and EU institutions. – 2. The ILO's tools and the guiding principles. – 3. The sources of Community law and the fundamental principles of social matters. – 4. The case of occupational health and safety protection. Working hours and "atypical" jobs. – 5. The European Union law on discrimination, business crises and minimum salary. – 6. The relationship between the internal system, the Community system and the international system on labor matters. – 7. A case study: the use of international and EU sources in two recent decisions of the Constitutional Court.

Teaching, Attendance, Course Books and Assessment

Teaching

Teaching will take place in traditional mode (lectures) and in innovative-experimental mode (Flipped Learning).

Specifically, the lessons will be carried out in the following ways:

traditional (lectures),
with flipped technique (n. 2-3 meetings).

Innovative teaching methods

The face-to-face teaching mode will be enriched with insights that students will carry out using the Moodle platform. Some topics of the course will be treated following the practice of the "flipped lesson".

Assessment

The expected learning results will be evaluated by means of an oral exam, based on three questions or more. The oral mode allows to evaluate, in the most complete way, as well as the communication skills of the student, the acquisition of analytical and critical skills required to students considering the complexity of issues and arguments of which they must demonstrate knowledge and understanding.

The evaluation criteria and the scale of marks are as follows:

less than 18/30: competence level insufficient. The student doesn’t reach the learning results described in “knowledge and understanding”.

18-20: competence level sufficient. In particular, the student attains the learning results described in “knowledge and understanding”.

21-23: competence level satisfactory. In particular, the student attains the learning results described in “knowledge and understanding” and in “applied knowledge and understanding”.

24-26: competence level good. In particular, the student attains the learning results described in “knowledge and understanding”, “applied knowledge and understanding” and “making judgments”.

27-29: competence level very good. In particular, the student attains the learning results described in “knowledge and understanding”, “applied knowledge and understanding”, “making judgments” and “communication skills”.

30-30 with honours: competence level excellent. The student fully attains the learning results described in “knowledge and understanding”, “applied knowledge and understanding”, “making judgments” and “learning skills”.

Disabilità e DSA

Le studentesse e gli studenti che hanno registrato la certificazione di disabilità o la certificazione di DSA presso l'Ufficio Inclusione e diritto allo studio, possono chiedere di utilizzare le mappe concettuali (per parole chiave) durante la prova di esame.

A tal fine, è necessario inviare le mappe, due settimane prima dell’appello di esame, alla o al docente del corso, che ne verificherà la coerenza con le indicazioni delle linee guida di ateneo e potrà chiederne la modifica.
