5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive!
This is a great book which helped me through my undergraduate employment law exam. It is very comprehensive, nicely set out and easy to navigate. Not ideal if you're only looking for introductory reading.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wrong sections of statutes!
This is quite a detailed book, but the biggest problems is that, it refers to the wrong statute sections especially for the new law --> Equality Act 2010.
I believe this book was written and editted in a rush because it was published shortly after Equality Act 2010 was passed, it is rather frustrating when you're reading through and realise wrong section numbers have...

2.0 out of 5 stars Wrong sections of statutes!, 12 May 2011
This review is from: Smith & Wood's Employment Law (Paperback)
This is quite a detailed book, but the biggest problems is that, it refers to the wrong statute sections especially for the new law --> Equality Act 2010.
I believe this book was written and editted in a rush because it was published shortly after Equality Act 2010 was passed, it is rather frustrating when you're reading through and realise wrong section numbers have been referred to. Unless you have your statute with you, and you are very clear with this new law itself, or else this is very misleading and will give you headache!
Apart from that its explanations are fine.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very detailed, 30 Oct 2011
This review is from: Smith & Wood's Employment Law (Paperback)
This is a very in depth books and gives you a detailed understanding of Employment law. The only crtiticism I have is that I have to read it a few times to get a grasp of it...if you have a vague understanding of employment Law to begin with then this book would be alot more easier for you. I would suggest reading it alongside a more simpler employment book.

It has a alot of cases and demonstrate the legal principles well. Also the footnotes are very detailed, which will help you alot if you have an upcoming employment assignment.

2.0 out of 5 stars to be avoided, 1 Nov 2012
This review is from: Smith & Wood's Employment Law (Paperback)
This textbook most defiantly is not suitable for 99% of UG students, it skips over major cases, misses major decisions and quotes obscure materials, and gets statutes blatantly wrong. The layout is haphazard, it make presumptions on the knowledge of those it was written for and is styled in a manner which makes a subject which can be dry practically dehydrated. If you want to buy a book which is more a guide/index round the subject that requires much wider reading(more than should be necessary), this is it, if not look elsewhere.
