employers and employees. In Canada, employment laws related to unionized workplaces are differentiated from those relating to particular individuals. In most countries however, no such distinction is made. However, there are two broad categories of labour law.

The EU economy had been slowing since the middle of 1995, but began recovering in the second half of 1996. Spring 1997 Economic Forecasts of the European Commission predicted that the real growth rate of the EU GDP would grow from the 1.6 percent of 1996 to 2.4 percent in 1997 and 2.8 percent in 1998 and that the recovery would therefore be firm.
