    Google AdWords - Infringing or Liberalizing Trade?: A Comparative Analysis of Treatment of Google AdWords under U.S. and EU Trademark Law2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Since Google as the world's largest and most popular search engine encourages Internet users to browse their search results, it is naturally functioning as an advertising vehicle and has turned into the most profitable Internet company in world's history. Google's success, however, has been subject to strong criticism as one of the main concerns is linked to Google AdWords, which reveal keyword-triggered advertisements as well as sponsored links besides unsponsored search results. Courts both in Europe and the United States under different trademark legislation felt forced to address the collision of pre-Internet trademark infringement doctrines with modern technology. 

    As Google AdWords have changed the way consumers observe Internet advertisements and search engines, the boundaries of trademark law have continuously been pushed forward. This development, thus, raises the question of whether Google AdWords by now are considered to function as trade liberalizer or trade infringer under two different trademark jurisdictions. 

    What is certain as of now is, that if the current circumstances are to change, courts cannot solely rely on old doctrines to adapt to new situations. Instead, new rules should not be subject to isolated court proceedings by individual instances regarded that jurisdictions of courts are limited by territorial boundaries and Google AdWords have evolved as an element of borderless online sphere. Taking these new challenges into account, this paper argues that addressing trademark issues originated by AdWords will demand an international consideration and coordinated efforts between the EU and the United States to bring forward an international solution.

    Arbetsgivares ansvar för rehabilitering: Vägen tillbaka i arbete, lång eller kort?2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Aim and questions: The purpose of this paper is to clarify the responsibilities employers have for rehabilitation and to explore how it conforms to an employers' actual condi-tions. Furthermore, the intention is to increase knowledge of how employers interact with other partners in the rehabilitation process and what affects sick people to return to work. The following three questions form the basis of this paper: What are employers’ responsibilities for rehabilitation under the law and how is it consistent with an employer's actual conditions? What is the role of employers in the rehabilitation co- operation with other actors? What factors influence sick people to return to work?

    Method: The paper has used a true scientific and a legal sociological method to examine how the regulated employer responsibility for rehabilitation relates to what is practical in re-ality. To achieve the purpose, four empirical interviews were conducted with Örebro Municipality, Insurance, occupational health Previa and a doctor, which all of them have an important role in the rehabilitation process. The interviewees received questionnaires in advance so they knew what was requested.

    Results: Sickness absence rates increased in Sweden during 2000-´s which has brought more attention to rehabilitation. Previous research shows that a dysfunctional workplace often has more sick leave than a well-functioning workplace and that employer’s incentives to improve working conditions differ. Employers have statutory occupational health and rehabilitation responsibilities, but the question is how it is fulfilled?

    The results show that Örebro Municipality has several documents that describe how they should proceed with their occupational health and rehabilitation work, and that they have introduced a so called health package. It is hoped that this preventative approach will lead to a reduction in sickness absence. The statistics also show that the proportion of long-term sickness has subsided, which they among other things think may be due to the rehabilitation chain introduced in 2008 with fixed time limits.

    Conclusion: Prevention and health promotion is essential to reduce the risk of sick leave and that earlier rehabilitation measures, the better. The rehabilitation chain has led to an earlier and more structured rehabilitation program and that more cases of illnesses are concluded more quickly. However, the rehabilitation interaction needs further improvement, in hopes that ongoing efforts will bring.

    Direktivet om uthyrda arbetstagare: Hur påverkas den svenska bemanningsbranschen?2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Arbetsmarknaden i Sverige har de senaste åren genomgått en markant flexibilisering i form av förändrade arbets- och organisationsformer. I takt med olika omvärldsförändringar har intresset för alternativa arbetsformer av diverse slag ökat. Bemanningsbranschen tillgodoser kravet på flexibla arbetsformer och är en bransch som har genomgått en kraftig tillväxt de senaste åren. I oktober 2008 antog EU ett bemanningsdirektiv vars syfte är att förena flexibla arbetsformer med en social trygghet för personal som hyrs ut av bemanningsföretag. Det antagna direktivet innehåller en likabehandlingsprincip som innebär att inhyrda arbetstagare ska ha minst samma grundläggande arbets- och anställningsvillkor som dem som anställts direkt av kundföretaget för samma tjänst.

     

    Syftet med uppsatsen är undersöka hur den svenska bemanningsbranschen påverkas av det nya direktivet. De inledande frågeställningarna utreder vad direktivet reglerar samt hur denna reglering skiljer sig från nu gällande svensk reglering. Utifrån jämförelsen diskuteras slutligen vilken övergripande påverkan direktivet kan komma att ha på bemanningsbranschen i Sverige. Bemanningsbranschen har haft en ledande roll i den flexibilisering som har skett på den svenska arbetsmarknaden de senaste åren och den har skapat långsiktiga förändringar när det gäller arbetsmarknaden organisation. De aspekter som kan komma att påverka bemanningsbranschen tas upp i den avslutande delen och gäller huruvida flexibiliteten ökar eller minskar samt om den svenska arbetsmarknadsmodellen kan komma att hotas i och med implementeringen av direktivet. Direktivet diskuteras även utifrån ett internationellt perspektiv samt ett jämställdhets- och mångfaldsperspektiv.

    Sjörättsmål: En jämförelse mellan målen i Sveriges sjörättsdomstolar2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In Sweden seven courts has been appointed to specialize in admiralty law cases. These cases are either civil or criminal cases with connection to shipping on Swedish territory.

    The objective was to examine and describe the admiralty law verdicts over time with focus on what types of cases, differences between courts and variation over time. The study focused on merchant shipping.

    Study of literature was chosen as method and with follow-up questions interviews were made with agencies and experts. The literature in this study was the 153 verdicts that were announced between 2009 and 2013.

    Of all verdicts collected were five civil cases and 148 criminal cases with 13 classifications. The largest difference between the courts was the sum of verdicts. A change over time could not be observed.

    Other conclusions that were made were that ships’ masters, that have the utmost responsibility, avoided prosecution when they were not present for the event of the prosecution.

    Det är dags att vi bryter isen: Damhockey eller "hockey", den riktiga ishockeyn.2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    To create a successful development in sports, gender equality is required. The lack of gender equality within the sport as an organization is therefore a problem and historically, sports is characterized by a gender structure where women is subordinate to men. The purpose of this essay is therefore to increase the knowledge of  the position of women within the field of ice hockey, and to open up for an analyzis of the gender equality within the rules of ice hockey using the theory of social constructionism. The theory makes it possible to highlight the meaning of commonly used concepts within the gender equality debate such as masculinity and femininity as social constructions depending on culture and history and how they change over time. This leads to the question of how the level of gender equality in the rules of ice hockey can be understood by using a social constructive theory. In order to achieve the purpose, the essay has the legal analyzis method as a basis to make the analyzis more nuanced. Interwiew as a method has also been used to create additional support for the conclusions. The study shows that there are significant differences in the rules of ice hockey that causes a problem with gender equality, but if you look under the surface, you could find that what seems to be natural, really is not. The rules of ice hockey, and the problem of gender equality are social constructions that changes under influence by the social environment.

    Sambandet mellan psykosocial arbetsmiljö och psykisk ohälsa: -en undersökning om hur arbetsmiljölagen tillämpas i Jönköpings kommun2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    The mental illness has increased sharply in the recent years and the focus on the psychosocial work environment has become more and more important. Today, the physical working environment is not the only thing that matters, the psychosocial work environment has taken more space and become a part of the labor environment law. The purpose of this work is to see how the concept of psychosocial environment law and mental health is regulated and worked with in the municipality of Jönköping, to gain a better understanding of how legal texts and rules apply in working life.

    Since the work is based on the regulations of Arbetsmiljöverket, the legal methodology is used to the greatest extent. The method is very similar to the traditional legal dogmatic method but provides little room for analysis. However, the legal sociological method will also be used to investigate what psychosocial work environment impact the employees.

    Psychosocial labour environment is very important for workers not to suffer from ill health. Various factors enter the psychosocial work environment that can contribute to psychological ill health. Stress, demands and uncomfortable working hours are just a few. The concept of psychosocial work environment is now included in the labour environment law and its regulations. There is, however, no indicative case law in this area.

    More research and more knowledge in the psychosocial labour environment is required for mental health to stop increase. Unfortunately, it is difficult to make the law more general, since each case in mental health is unique.

    En studie om konflikter i arbetslivet och det  systematiska arbetsmiljöarbetets roll som verktyg till förebyggande arbete.2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    The main subject of this essay is conflicts at work and the effect it has on the employee´s health.  I can through various reports read that bad health at workplaces is too high and that conflicts are a reason. What can be done to the work environment so it will be better from a psychosocial perspective? Sweden has a regulation that makes the employer responsible to work for an improvement in the work environment; can these regulations be used in purpose to reduce conflicts?

    My first question concerns the possibility to establish preventive procedures in the workplace systematic work regarding to improve the work environment. My second question is about the obligations of the employer to attempt to reduce conflicts at the workplace and the third question regards the documenting and monitoring of conflicts and the preventing work to reduce them. The purpose of this essay is to clarify how conflict preventive work can be included in the Systematic work environment management. To find answers to my questions I will interpret and analyze the current Swedish law but also international law. Current law and regulations will be supplemented with interviews to obtain information about the employer´s approach to preventive work regarding conflicts.

    After analyzing the material I come to my conclusion that it´s possible to use current regulations as a tool to reduce conflicts at workplaces and through that also reduce sick leave due to psychological disorders. But there is a need to set up more concrete routines that makes the employer´s obliged to take all measures deemed necessary.

    Oaktsamhetsbrotten i svensk (och finsk) rätt – ett halvsekel senare2016In: Tidskrift utgiven av juridiska föreningen Finland, ISSN 0040-6953, no 5, p. 497-516Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    När Carl Elwing 1963 i JFT skrev en artikel om oaktsamhetsbrotten i svensk rätt var brottsbalken visserligen beslutad men hade ännu inte trätt i kraft. Mer än ett halvt sekel har passerat och det kan väl därför vara på sin plats med en uppdatering. Även den finska strafflagstiftningen har genomgått en stor revision och utan anspråk på egentlig fördjupning skall ändå en viss utblick även till Finland göras här.

    Abstract [en]

    Sweden has become an increasingly multicultural society where different religions and values ​​meet. Recently, the Swedish Labour Court decided, whether a company´s policy that demands an employee to shake hand, prevent the employee´s freedom of religion or if the policy had a legitimate purpose since it was a way of achieving equality between men and women at workplace.  The aim of this essay was to investigate how the court judges when the employer´s obligation not to discriminate on the ground of gender collides with an employee´s freedom of religion. In order to answer the question and achieve the purpose of this essay, the author has used a doctrinal method.  By studying the current law, the author of this essay has concluded that freedom of religion is protected by European Convention on Human Rights, article 9. The right to believe is complete, and is called forum internum. The right to practice a religion through a religious manifestation, is called forum externum. This right is not complete and can be restricted.  Freedom of religion has a strong legal protection, but there are situations where the right of others also must be considered. A employee has, in working life, not only rights, but also obligations towards the employer. This may imply restrictions on a employee's freedom of religion since the employer has the right to lead and distribute the work. An employer is obligated to work for an equal workplace. If the means used to achieve gender equality are appropriate and necessary, the freedom of religion in working life can be restricted.

    Tillämpningen av positiv särbehandling: På grund av kön och etnicitet2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Directive 2006/54/EG from the European Union concerns the equal rights between men and woman and the principle of equal rights. The purpose of the directive is that the member states provide the equal rights between men and woman. Affirmative action is one exception from the principle of equal rights which is settled in directive 2006/54/EG, article 3. The purpose for the affirmative action must be to encourage the equal rights between men and women.

    EU has specific criteria to use affirmative action, which is created by praxis of the Court of Justice of the European Union. These criteria are that the affirmative action must involve an objective assessment, there must be equal qualifications between the person which is affirmative action and the person who is not, the positive action cannot be automatically decisive and this special treatment should be proportionate to the purpose. The rules about affirmative action in Sweden are the same as the EU has suggested in praxis.

    In directive 2000/43/EG about

    the principle of equal treatment between persons irrespective of racial or ethnic origin, article 5, EU declares that the principle of equal rights shall not prevent any member state from conserving or implementing specific measures to prevent or compensate disadvantages linked to ethnic origin or racial. This form of affirmative action due to ethnicities is prohibited in Sweden. The debate about this form has been large and labour unions in Sweden are not positive about it. The government in Sweden thinks that there is a problem that ethnicities is not a homogenous group and that it will bring complications with the enforcement.

    If affirmative action due to ethnicity should be assimilating in Swedish law requires statistic over ethnicity, and if that should be possible it must be a change in the 13 § Privacy protection law. The Privacy protection law is a subsidiary law, and if the government in Sweden want, they could make an exception for statistic over ethnicity.

    Lojalitetsplikt i uthyrningsbranschen: - En uppsats om lojalitetsförhållandet mellan kundföretag och inhyrd arbetskraft2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    During the last part of the 20th century many companies has started to build their organizations on knowledge and information instead of manufacturing of products.  Today it is easier to communicate and spread information. At the same time the numbers of untraditional employments like temporary employments and workers from staffing agencies are increasing. Many organizations have higher employee turnover now than before. This allows more people to have access to confidential information, whose spreading might cause great damage for the employer. This essay aims to look into the protection of confidential information for the client against offenses from staffing agency workers that are working within the clients’ organization. Protection of confidential information is included in the duty of loyalty in terms of confidentiality, protection of trade secrets and competition clauses. Duty of loyalty lies within the employment contract between the agency employer and the staffing agency. Therefore the agency employer has no duty to be loyal against the client. For the agency worker to be able to perform the required work duties he or she might be provided with confidential information. Spreading of this information could cause damage for the client. Can the rules of justice that regulates duty of loyalty be applied on the relationship between the client and the agency worker?  What are the consequences of the rules that exist today?

    This essay is written with a juridical method and with sociology of law perspective. Other parts of the duty of loyalty is not included as well as the duty of loyalty for the employer.

    The conclusion is that the staffing agency is responsible for indemnity towards the client if an agency employer reviles confidential information about the clients’ organization.  Some rules of justice can be interpreted as an expression that duty of loyalty lays between the client and the agency worker. For example, the agency worker is bound by confidentiality in terms of the conditions at the clients’ organization.  Suggestions of changes in the regulations about protection of confidential information will force the agency worker to pay indemnity to the client if he or she reviles confidential information.  

    In staffing agencies there are twice as many immigrants than in the regular labor market. The rules of duty of loyalty can contribute to a holdback for immigrants that are working in staffing agencies. Immigrants will be at bigger risk of standing outside the general labor market than people born in Sweden because of static discrimination.

    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish social democratic welfare state seems to be the result of some unique historical set of circumstances. A vital condition seems to be that reform instead of revolution became the king’s way to changing society. In practice this meant that a certain set of problematizationswere put to use which pointed toward the welfare state as a political solution. My interest here is how the welfare state was opened as a political arena. For Vanessa Barker the social democratic welfare state is not the solution to “(…) a more just and equal penal order” (2013, p. 21). On the contrary, due to ethno-nationalism and weak constitutional traditions regarding individual rights, the Swedish welfare state has a tendency toward repressiveness against individuals deemed as “others.”

    Abstract [sv]

    Denna bok handlar om en svensk stads utveckling under några omvälvande årtionden runt millennieskiftet. Staden är Landskrona, men den stadsutveckling som skildras är en strukturomvandling som sker i hela västvärlden idag. Forskningen visar att bostads­omflyttningen handlar om genomgripande samhällsförändringar. Bostadssegregationen är ett uttryck för dessa förändringar.Genom olika nedslag i människors vardagsliv ­undersöker denna bok mötet mellan privat och ­offentligt. Men ­istället för att uppehålla sig vid utpekade problemgrupper eller bostads­områden, analyseras Hela staden. I det vakuum som uppstod efter industriepokens ­dramatiska nedgång har vilsenhet och otrygghet brett ut sig. Staden hålls inte längre samman, vare sig som social eller ­funktionell e­nhet. Genom en fysisk upp­delning mellan rika och fattiga områden och genom föreställningar om olika ”vi” och ”dom”, sönderfaller staden i olika beståndsdelar. Här är begreppet desintegration centralt. Föreställningen om ett samhälle där alla har rätt till delaktighet och välfärd utmanas i ­modern stadsutveckling. Så även grunden för den svenska välfärdsmodellen.

    The Downfall of the Rehabilitative Ideal and the Establishing of a new Political Legitimacy in Swedish Crime Policy 1965 to 19892017In: Bergen Journal of Criminal Law & Criminal Justice, E-ISSN 1894-4183, Vol. 5, no 2, p. 108-130Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The downfall of the rehabilitative ideal is considered a decisive episode if we want to understand the changes that have transpired in crime policy the last three to four decades. In Sweden, the downfall followed abruptly on the final establishing of individual prevention as theoretical bases for crime policy by the enactment of a new penal code in 1965. This paper follows the trajectory of the downfall in Sweden by doing a genealogy thereof. The purpose is to contribute to a more empirically developed understanding of the course of Swedish crime policy during the formative years of the 1970s to the early 1990s. Firstly, the paper addresses the topic by examining the scholarly critique that paved the way for the downfall of the rehabilitative ideal. Secondly, the paper analyses the political handling of the downfall and the consequence this had for policy. Methodological this is done by way of genealogy exploring the historical pedigree of present-day crime policy in Sweden, not as a linear development, but as plural and sometimes contradictory pasts. Theoretical the paper aims to analyze the trajectory by way of a governmentality perspective, i.e. it focuses on crime policy as a means of governing life and the population, thus exploring the different forms governing takes.

    Svensk kriminalpolitik2017 (ed. 2)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Boken beskriver och analyserar den svenska kriminalpolitikens utveckling från en institutionsbaserad och straffbetonad kriminalpolitik i statens regi, över välfärdsstatens sociala ingenjörskonst, till dagens ”nya” kriminalpolitik med växande betoning på liberala styrningsmodeller, kontroll och risktänkande. Strafftänkandet har fått en renässans, samtidigt som brottsoffren uppmärksammas allt mer.I denna reviderade och utökade upplaga diskuterar författarna särskilt vilken betydelse EU-medlemskapet har haft för den svenska kriminalpolitiken samt hur den förändrade situationen i världen – inte minst hotet från terrorismen och de ökade flyktingströmmarna – lett till en gradvis sammansmältning av kriminalpolitiken med säkerhetspolitiken.

    Abstract [sv]

    Dagens kriminalpolitik och brottspreventiva arbete bygger på olika former av kontroll. Arbetet baseras på en orsaksbild där brott uppstår på grund av bristande kontroll, vilket ger att brottsförebyggande arbete handlar om ökad kontroll, gärna upp till en nolltoleransnivå. Genom teorier som Fixing brokens windows går också det brottsförebyggande arbetet hand i hand med målsättningar om att göra staden ”ren och vacker”. Ett utryck för dessa ambitioner är Stockholms stads klotterpolicy. De senaste åren har emellertid sett framväxten av ett fenomen som vanligtvis går under begreppet gatukonst, ett estetiskt uttryck som inte helt enkelt låter sig inordnas under stadens nolltolerans. Gatukonsten väcker frågan om vilka kulturella uttryck som skall tillåtas finnas i staden. I detta arbete tittar vi dels på fenomenet gatukonst i relation till dagens kriminalpolitik, dels försöker vi utveckla en teoretisk modell för hur man kan förstå dagens skeenden. Denna modell tar sin utgångspunkt i att styrandet har förskjutits från ett styrande av befolkningen till ett styrande av territorium.

    Den svenska modellen och dess framtid2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study reflects on the swedish model and the models future. The swedish model

    means that legisilation acts with the collective agreements . The wage issue is not

    regulated by law instead it is managed by the social partners in the form of collective

    agreements. In 2008, a report was presented by the Commission on a joint regulation of

    the minimum wage for all EU countries. The issue has become increasingly

    controversial and was especially disccused for the election of candidates to the

    European Parlament last spring. Such regulation as the comission proposed leads to a

    threat to the Swedish labour model. Therefore the aim of this study was to illuminate

    the Swedish model and to study alternative solutions to the model in an international

    perspective. A method with sociology of law perspective was chosen and considered

    suitable to answer the purpose of the study. This study indicates that the swedish model

    is a succesfull model but the model is facing several challenges. Due to the swedish

    membership in EU we have to considerate both national and international law and these

    are not allways compatible. The model embrace a high number of employees but there

    are some groups of people that are excluded. Thoose who are excluded are not

    organized in the union like post workers and young adult workers. It is abious that the

    model sustains limits and there fore a good complement could be collective agreements

    with erga omnes effect.

    Abstract [sv]

    I sexton avsnitt berättas om några av de brott som begåtts i Småland från 1500-talet till mitten av 1950-talet. De skildras ur olika perspektiv och olika brott och brottstyper står i fokus. Bland annat handlar det om Kronobergs läns sista avrättning 1850 och två av den småländska kriminalhistoriens mest omtalade rättsfall, mordet på Anna Johansdotter 1906 och den så kallade Husebyhärvan på 1950-talet

    Meddelartrygghet: För privatanställda på offentligt finansierade jobb2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This paper examines how notifies security looks for private employed workers in jobs founded by the public. The aim is to clarify the legal situation surrounding notifies law, and to analyze possible shortcomings in the law with a focus on the future.

    Notifies law is based on five cornerstones. Where freedom of information, a right to provide information to the media for publication, “acquires the right” and protection to be anonymous when talking to the press goes to all workers. The other two pillars, “a look up prohibitions” and “retaliatory forbid” apply only to employees in the public sector. Workers in the public sector has a stronger protection in a inform situation then a privately employed worker has. Differences in announces protection can be problematic when the former traditional public services such as schools, health care and care is conducted in private. Employees in these sectors with a history of strong protection as they provided information to the media, no longer have the same protection with a private employer. This despite the fact that they have the same work activities, are carried out with the same public funds and the importance of transparency and protecting the interests, ought to exist.

    The work addresses the policy tools that affect notifies law. The essay examines include committee directives, reports, legislation and social change. It is the individual perspective that characterizes the investigation. Individual perspective is broadened by a social, historical, international and gender perspective.

    The study divides the legal differences in announces security between different groups of workers in a legal and in a perceived part. There are legal differences that depend on the employer, the employee has. When the employee is not aware of the differences, instead you can talk about the perceived legal protection. Furthermore, the essay takes up the gender dimension of health, education and care is dominated by women. This affects women as a group due to the structural changes in the labor market, leading to impaired announces protection for those who move to private employers.

    The work concludes that the law surrounding announces security is difficult to take in and to form an opinion about. Notifies court extends across different areas, and in some sectors, there is special legislation. The paper calls for a comprehensive legislation, making notifies law more transparent and easier to absorb for workers as well as managers and employers. It is desirable that such legislation should include all workers, regardless of employer.

    Keywords: Freedom of expression, freedom of information, announces protection, job security, open government.

    Lean Productions påverkan på ekonomistyrningen: En fallstudie inom Gnutti Powertrain AB2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Master thesis, Program of Master of Science in Business and Economics, School of Business and Economics at Linneaus University in Växjö, 4FE03E, Spring 2013

    Title:  Lean Production's influence on management accounting - A case study on Gnutti Powertrain AB.

    Background: Due to more and more competitive markets, companies have searched for new ways to develop and streamline their operations.  This has lead to the fact that many companies have choosen to implement the production strategy Lean Production. Several scientists have demonstrated that the traditional management accounting is not adapted to nor suitable for companies that use the production strategy Lean Production.  This has meant that the traditional management accounting has had to change and be developed in order to be able to support  the changes that the new production strategy give rise to. Thus, it became interesting to study a specific case of a company to identify if, and how this company has changed its management accounting as a result of using Lean Production.

     Purpose: The purpose with this study is, that by studying the single case of Gnutti Powertrain AB, to contribute with an understanding of how the management accounting's design and application are influenced by the use of the advanced production strategy Lean Production. The study also intends to identify and describe what additional changes Gnutti Powertrain AB's management accounting might have to experience in order to support the company's new production strategy.

    Methods: The thesis is a qualitative study consisting of a case study of the manufacturing company Gnutti Powertrain AB. The collection of data has primarily consisted of interviews, but also includes direct observations, and collected documentation, like for example; information from the business system, annual reports, and corporate documents.

    Results, conclusions: The results in this study show that the use of Lean Production leads to different types of production- and organizational changes which affect the design and use of management accounting. It is also detected that, as a result of the introduction of Lean Production, the  case company has changed the management accounting, within the areas of accounting, budgeting, calculation, and performance measurement. Through an extensive analysis of the case company's present management accounting,  it has also been identified and demonstrated further changes that the company's management accounting can undergo. The proposals are comprised of a method that can be used to identify and evaluate the operative improvement's influence on the financial result, together with how the company can improve its calculation method by developing the work with Value Stream Costing.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this paper is to investigate and analyse the employers legal right to demand a medical certificate from an employee from the very first day in a leave of absence due to illness. Further the paper will investigate the possible consequences and repercussions that an employee faces if he or she is not willing or able to procure a medical certificate by the demand of an employer. A minor comparative study about work security during illness and sick leave in Sweden and Denmark will be carried out and analysed. To gain a broader perspective on sick leave a gender perspective will be analysed as well. The paper is largely based on a doctrinal method of traditional legal analysis.

    Due to the change in legislation regarding sick pay paid by employer in 2008 all employers without collective agreements gained the right to demand a medical certificate from an employee. Reasons behind the requests can vary from an early start in rehabilitation to the suspicion of unrightfully use of sick pay.

    The general rule in Sweden unlike Denmark is that you cannot be dismissed due to illness, and there are comprehensive obligations for an employer to partake in the rehabilitation and return to work for an employee. Permanent reduced capacity for work or lack of cooperation in the rehabilitation process by the employee stipulates exceptions for dismissal due to illness. By not procuring a medical certificate an employee could consequently face dismissal.

    Abstract [en]

    Working time is a constantly discussed topic. In Sweden working time is largely controlled by collective agreements. About 90% of all workers are covered by a collective agreement. For those who are parts of a collective agreement, it is important to consider the regulations in both the Swedish Arbetstidslagen (ATL) and the Working Time Directive (the Directive) when making a collective agreement. The purpose of this thesis is to examine various aspects of working time regulation in the form of directives, law and collective agreements. The thesis intends to contribute to knowledge of how the regulations regarding working hours in Sweden meet the requirements of the Directive by the EU. Further, the purpose is to examine how deviations from ATL can be regulated by collective agreements.

    The legal dogmatic method has been used in combination with an EU legal method. Directive, law, preparatory acts, case law, doctrine and literature were studied to investigate the legal situation. Collective agreements have been used as a source of law as well as empirical material. When studying implementation of the Directive to Swedish law, certain contradictions can be identified. The Swedish model collides with the Directive and the Swedish legislators as well as the Labour court choose to safeguard the Swedish model. Another contradiction is the purpose of the directive, protection of worker's health and safety, it is important and the Court of Justice of EU returns to it in many cases. A counterpart is lacking in ATL, instead, a connection is made to AML. Furthermore, the definition of working time is an issue where differences can be noticed between the Directive and Swedish law. Interpretations of the Court of Justice of EU and ATL defines different interpretations of call time and a new case may affect the travel time. The Court of Justice of EU calls the member countries to have equivalent definitions of working time and it should originate from the Directive.

    Regarding deviations through collective agreements the study shows that there are difficulties to interpret 3 § ATL, which is giving contradictory instructions regarding deviations. The paragraph and the EU-lock puts a great responsibility on the parties of the labour market to be familiar with both the Swedish law and the Directive. Some regulations are better for workers in ATL than the Directive at first glance, but this can be settled by collective agreements. Practice shows that there may be errors in the preparation of collective agreements.

    The Finnish (and Nordic) ice hockey map is redrawn: Jokerit moves to KHL2016Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background/problem/issue

    “Jokerit to KHL 2014”: this was the biggest sports-related news in Finland summer 2013. On a well-attended press conference in Helsinki Jokerits owner Mr. Harry “Hjallis” Harkimo informed that he decided to move Jokerit from Helsinki to the Russian ice hockey league Kontinental Hockey League (KHL) season 2014/2015. KHL was established “[t]o promote the successful development of hockey in Russia and other countries in Europe and Asia” and has clubs from several European counties; example Belarus, Croatia, Latvia, Czech republic and since 2014 Finland.

    The sporting and economic magnitude of Jokerits move to KHL should be borne in mind that Jokerit is one of Finland's most successful ice hockey clubs in sporting terms and one of Finland's largest ice hockey clubs in financial terms. According the Finnish journalist Kaj Kunnas at YLE Mr. Harkimos reason to move Jokerit is easy to understand: "Money, money, money." In terms of Americanization we can speak of profit-maximization à la American model (major leagues) has become a part of Finnish ice hockey.

    The main problem and research task is to analyze Jokerits move to KHL considering this was a huge step away from the traditional organization of Finnish (and Nordic) ice hockey and sports in general.

    Method

    Document analysis and interviews with Jokerits owner Mr. Harkimo, the chairman of the Finnish ice hockey federation Kalervo Kummola and stakeholders of Swedish ice hockey (Nordic aspect).

    Theory

    Americanization. The term Americanization means of tradition that American influence and culture is received/imported/forced to a country (ice hockey).

    Result

    Mr. Harkimo has moved Jokerit to KHL to develop the business of European ice hockey despite the traditional organization (sport model) of Finnish and Nordic ice hockey.
