Marcus Meyer (M.)
Marcus Meyer is Assistant Professor at the Public Law Department of the Faculty of Law.
His research interests cover employee participation issues, both under national and EU law, as well as corporate mobility issues. Aside from his (dissertation) research on works councils in multinational corporations, also cross-border mergers, European Companies (SEs) and other forms of corporate mobility are part of his research focus. The research on works councils in multinational corporations also touches upon the relationship with (recommended) supervisory board members and the management as well as other stakeholders.

Recently, his focus has been primarily on cross-border company mobility and its impact on employees and employee participation.
