Inclusion of employees into decision making processes
The participation of workers in decision making processes in the company can be somewhat defined as the participation in managing changes, namely in the work that deals with the future position or future rights of workers. Preparing workers to deal with changes or changed circumstances is also the main reason for including employees into the decision making processes. It needs to be highlighted that preparing workers to deal with changes or changed circumstances is not the only reason for including employees into the decision making processes. In addition to the interests of employees, the participation in decision making processes also benefits the company and the employer, which is often forgotten or the employer’s interests are not adequately defined by law.
We, the project partners, have prepared this publication in order to show the legal and actual participation frameworks of including employees into the decision making processes, to critically elaborate and present the two participation models in two member states and to form the recommendations for an effective transfer of relevant parts of the European legal order into the national legislation of future members by taking into account the conclusions of research done in countries who are the project partners.
