The analysis of dangers to labour law given by the author takes into account following
phenomena: the modernization of the economic structure of contemporary societies,
the change in the sphere of the state tasks as well as the opinions of legal doctrine. The analysis
includes historical references, especially towards the practices of Stalin (Soviet) epoch
and to the Jugoslav self-government system. Author concludes that neither the change
of production methods nor the state tasks increase or rise in the number of civil servants
as well as appearance of new doctrines, ideologies and conceptions do not pose a significant
threat to the existence or development of labour law seen in its different dimensions, i.e.
as a special complex of rules or particular practice or special subject of research and teaching.
