Format: Paperback
THE MAIN TOPICS OF EMPLOYMENT LAW – NOW IN A NEW SIXTH EDITION FROM THE LAW SOCIETY

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

Whether you are relatively new to employment law, or a specialist practitioner, this highly regarded Handbook in this new sixth edition should be considered a necessary purchase for your professional library.

Presented in handy paperback format, this text of over 400 pages -- new from The Law Society -- is designed for the busy practitioner, combining as it does, rigorous legal analysis with a practical plain-English approach. Every conceivable issue you are likely to encounter in employment law is covered.

Following a brief historical overview, subsequent chapters examine a range of issues, from contracts of employment to, for example, termination of employment, unfair dismissal, redundancy, transfer of undertakings and the various forms of discrimination pertaining to sex, race, age, disability and other criteria. Also note the chapters on remedies and compensation and time limits, procedure and settlement.

Incorporating much new material, this new edition covers recent developments in case law and legislation. Especially important are the recent changes that have affected access to and use of employment tribunals.

As the authors, Daniel Barnett, Keira Gore and Henry Scrope explain, ‘July 2013 marked a big sea change for employment law and procedure with the introduction of tribunal fees (which can run into thousands of pounds) pre-termination “protected conversations”, a new cap on unfair dismissal compensation and changes to the procedural rules.’

These developments alone will impact on the number of claims being pursued in employment tribunals.

Format: Paperback
As a retired lawyer no longer having access to the full legal library, this title keeps me up to date without being too simplistic.This is what one would expect from Daniel Barnett and his colleagues.

These developments alone will impact on the number of claims being pursued in employment tribunals. The overall aim here is to reduce the cost of the tribunal system to the taxpayer.

Other new material includes commentary on such issues as Acas conciliation and the 2014 amendments to TUPE 2005. Anticipated changes in maternity, paternity, adoption and parental leave are also discussed.

Not only does the book provide a useful and up-to-date overview of employment law, it also contains the expected resources for further research, including tables of cases, statutes, statutory instruments and European legislation. For ease of use, there are numbered paragraphs throughout -- and a detailed table of contents and index at the back. Anyone in any way involved professionally with employment law and its complexities will treasure this Handbook.

The law is cited as at January 2014.
