Les prud’hommes et la fabrique du droit du travail : contribution à une sociologie des rôles judiciaires

Abstract : How do the persons on French labor relation tribunals (prud'hommes), where representatives from employer associations and labor unions sit, help, through the awards they make, shape law in the field of labor relations? A "sociographic" survey brings to light both the plurality of forms of commitment to this institution and the key role played by a group of "professionals" in these tribunals. The analysis of how these persons have been socialized in this institution and of how they formulate judgements shows that the awards made stem from three different but combined rationales: the law, labor union representation and the world of work. Another way of studying the work of a judiciary is proposed in between the social arrangements of magistrates, institutional affiliations and practices related to judgements.
