Product Description

Employment law: an adviser's handbook, now it its tenth edition, is the definitive text on employment law for the adviser. It is uniquely focused on the claimant and covers the wide range of employment law problems in a clear and practical form. It aims to make this ever-evolving, and increasingly complex, area of law accessible to both employment law specialists and non-lawyers.

Employment law: an adviser's handbook provides up to date coverage of UK and European employment and discrimination law. There is clear and succinct commentary on the rapidly growing body of case-law and thorough consideration of the relevant domestic legislation, EU treaties and directives.

There is step-by-step guidance for advisers running unfair dismissal and discrimination cases with as much space devoted to evidence, precedents and checklists as to setting out the law. Each chapter starts with a useful summary of key points and there is extensive cross-referencing throughout. The main text is supported by practical resources including sample case papers, a glossary and signposts to other sources of information.

Since the last edition, the coalition government has systematically cut back on employment rights, as well as making radical changes to the tribunal system by removing non-legal members from unfair dismissal claims, charging fees and (from 2014) introducing compulsory pre-claim conciliation. This edition aims to guide the adviser though all the recent changes and developments and is up to date to include the 2013 employment tribunal procedural rules.

This tenth edition consolidates this handbook’s reputation as the essential guide to employment law for all claimant advisers, trade union representatives, lawyers and any individual looking for a comprehensive, yet accessible, guide to employment law.

A CLEAR AND PRACTICAL APPROACH TO EMPLOYMENT LAW FOR THE BUSY PRACTITIONER

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

Employment lawyers everywhere will welcome this latest edition -- the tenth to be precise -- of `Employment Law', recently published by the Legal Action Group. As author Tamara Lewis describes, it covers `the wide range of employment problems in a clear and practical form'.

The aim, she adds, is to provide everyone and anyone involved in employment law with a supportive guide which not only identifies the relevant law and evidential issues; it can be used as a self-contained guide to the conduct and procedures pertaining to unfair dismissal and discrimination cases - hence the emphasis on evidence, precedents and checklists.

It is pointed out that employment law is a large subject (huge in fact) which has burgeoned over the last decade or so as a result of EC influence, which is why this volume of over 900 pages is now twice the size of the first edition, although as the author explains, it is impossible to cover the whole of employment law in one volume. As this particular guide comes from the estimable Legal Action Group, which seeks to redress where possible any form of injustice against the vulnerable, the book centres on advice that would be most useful to low paid workers and their advisers, as well as issues relating to discrimination.

The expert author has endeavoured to include all the changes and new developments in this area of law, including `a completely new set of employment tribunal procedural rules.' The end result is what has been rightly referred to as `the definitive text on employment law for the adviser'.

I had a choice: pay £200 to a solicitor for an hours worth of advice or spend just over £30 on this book. The headline says it all. There are over 20 detailed chapters with bang up to date information on all aspects of employment law. I has already purchased the very good Employment Tribunal Claims 3rd Edition but needed more information in certain areas. This book definitely provided it. For solicitors who need to reference the latest employment legislation or individuals who are representing themselves at tribunals this book is invaluable.

5.0 out of 5 stars A jolly good read 26 Feb 2014
By Blossom
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have been using this book for years and would thoroughly recommend it if you are an adviser in the area of employment law. The fact that I can have it on my Kindle makes it easier to access rather than carrying a large book around with me. We'll worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Text 21 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Employment law is a complicated animal. Legalese is a baffling language. Tamara Lewis translates all that into plain English in logical steps. As a trade union official, this is an essential text book for me in my day job. It helps me not only understand legal positions, it helps me explain that to members. It has also helped me to prepare stronger cases for referral to our solicitors. Couldn't recommend it enough.
