In this paper, we combine sources to approach the tendency and the format of outsourcing regarding industrial relations system (ICTWSS - Database on Institutional Characteristics of Trade Unions, Wage Setting, State Intervention and Social Pacts), flexibility in labor regulation (OECD indicators of employment protection legislation) and sectoral and company characteristics, comparing as well data from 2004, 2009 and 2013. This analysis is complemented with an in-depth study of regulatory frameworks and labor market trends in relation to outsourcing practices in six European countries representatives of different models of industrial relations: France, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Poland and United Kingdom.
