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. Whether you are a lawyer or layman, you'll find the summary of key points and extensive cross referencing and other aids to navigation helpful, not to mention the precedents, checklists, questionnaires, indicators to other research resources and glossary of terms.
This is a volume you can check out for the latest in employment law as at 26 June 2009. New material includes, for example, the new ACAS regime which replaces statutory dispute resolution. the Disability Discrimination Act post Lewisham LBC -v- Malcolm...coverage of the latest in discrimination law, particularly age and religious discrimination, plus the latest cases on statutory holiday entitlement and cases dealing with the often disputable question of who is an employee...and of course, cases on equal pay.
So, for steering you through the complexities of employment law, this handbook is the ideal guide...and, yes, it is the definitive short work for advisers and we expect to see it in most courts and tribunals bookshelves.
