Contractual Arrangement or Human Right?

Is employment merely a contractual arrangement between two parties, or is it a human right?  That question is beginning to take on practical significance, particularly in the EU, given Article 9 of the European Convention on Human Rights.

Does Article 9 govern employment law in the EU countries?  The question is likely to be contentious, and so far British courts, at least, haven’t come up with a solution, according to Christopher Booth of Pinsent Masons in Leeds, in Human Rights Challenge Causes Discord in the Court of Appeal.
