‘What is labour law for?’ is a question with a past. I therefore begin by sketching out its history. It has a present too, whose most striking feature – I argue – may well be the end of ‘labour.’ And of course it has a future: what will labour law look like ‘after labour?’ I address all three questions largely from a North American perspective, but with reference to experience in the United Kingdom and Europe.
