Ms Lewis (and her previous co-author, Thomas Kibling) have been producing revised editions of this book for several years now.

Let me say right off the bat, I am directly involved in representing UK workers in employment law situations and this book has been my single greatest asset. I have been very successful over the years and I owe Ms Lewis' book for that. It is accessible (I am not a lawyer); practical and thorough. Not just that, it is inspirational. Several times it has been the springboard for me to approach cases in new ways. It is full of sample letters and advice on how to write to employers or tribunals; how to gather evidence; what to look for; what the key points of law in each area are. Absolutely invaluable.

Look out for other stuff she or the Legal Action Group may produce as it is all sound and practical advice. Be mindful of the date of publication as each edition is substantially updated.

If you represent UK workers in employment situations and you are serious about doing a good job - BUY THIS BOOK. It's THAT good.

This is another excellent book from LAG. It sits perfectly alongside Cunningham and Reed's "Employment Tribunal Claims" also from LAG. While the latter helps newcomers enormously with tactics, Employment Law - an Adviser's Handbook goes into much more detail about employment law itself and how it has been and should be interpreted. It is written in an easy to understand style. No adviser's handbook would be complete without checklists to use when giving advice. This has just that. The lists are great for advisers as well as litigants in person wanting to make sure they have thought of everything

(I make my living as an employment law adviser)

I have never been at an Employment Tribunal in my life and knew very little (probably nothing actually)about employment law. I am in the position however, of having to take my employer to an ET. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Even if you are going to go to a solicitor I am a great believer that you should know enough about a situation to be able to ask the right questions and understand the answers. I went to a solicitor who set me on the right track and this book provided a wealth of information to enable me to 'run' an application for an ET myself. I've read other books Employment Tribunals (the Inns of Court publication is another one I'd recommend) and I'm a believer that no one publication can have all the answers, but this one has been the foundation to all the others for me - it's highly detailed, yet written for any reasonably competent person who is able to read. Books on the law and how a layperson can use it are very rare - this one delivers. My thanks to Tamara Lewis.

FINALLY, THE IDEAL GUIDE FOR PRACTICAL EMPLOYMENT LAWYERS:
Another definitive work from LAG

An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers

With `the workplace' being an almost infinite space, employment law will inevitably continue to generate an almost infinite number of problems, especially in recent years during which the subject has expanded dramatically as the result of European influences.

Before the publication by the Legal Action Group (LAG) of Tamara Lewis's book `Employment Law,' there was, as far as we know, no single text which encompassed the full range of employment problems in a clear and practical form at a reasonable price. Now, fortunately there is.

Significantly, and a sign of the time, this 8th edition of `Employment Law' is twice as long as the 1st edition of 1991.So, in line with its original objectives, `Employment Law' has become the definitive work on this complex, continually changing area of law.

As one might expect from a publication from the admirable Legal Action Group, the work is thorough, logically structured and, very usefully, claimant focused. It's therefore ideal for voluntary sector advisers, legal advice centres, trades union representatives and of course, lawyers, as well as individuals looking for authoritative and practical guidance on employment law.

`Lewis on Employment Law' deals clearly and succinctly with the fast developing body of case law, together with the relevant domestic legislation, EU Treaties and directives. As with all LAG publications, the approach is practical, with step-by-step guidance on running a case.

This is a fantastic book: informative, very comprehensive and written in a style that is easy for a lay person with some background knowledge of the area to understand. I was very pleased with the services of Brown Books, the sellers.

If you find yourself in the unfortunate position of having to decide on going to Employment tribunal do not be quick to run there, its no picnic the stress involved over many months and sometimes years has ruined many lives for very little reward if any. The law is not clear cut even if you have a winning case in your mind. If however you feel you have a good case be certain to read this (or the newly updated version) before you make your decision it will be the most useful book you will ever buy and ideally you should have it early enough while it will be useful to you. If for example you are being made redundant don't wait to buy this book until you have left as you may have hindered you chances of collecting the very evidence you would need for your case. Good luck what ever you decide.
