The erosion of a number of national systems of employment relations, and the evidence from
large scale workplace surveys has brought attention to the considerable diversity of
employment systems within major economies. This essay applies the theory of evolutionary
games to explain the diffusion of different employment systems within national economies,
and how they interact with established sectoral and national level institutions. This also helps
to explain potential tipping points in their expansion and retreat. Evidence to support the
argument is taken from the British and French workplace employment relations surveys and
the European Working Conditions Survey.
