Product description


This is a textbook on UK employment law which is both introductory and comprehensive. It is aimed primarily at people who have not studied law previously, but who are studying for qualifications at either undergraduate or postgraduate level that include employment law modules. The book is written in an accessible style, offering explanations of all key concepts, together with examples from the case law to help readers understand all major developments in the field. It differs from other texts on employment law in its extensive coverage of debates about the law, there is thus a considerable amount of evaluative material included alongside chapters which describe and explain the law. Comparative examples are also included wherever possible. Practical aspects of bringing and defending claims in employment tribunals are also covered. There is also a supporting website which will contain regular updates on employment law as it develops, together with additional learning materials. Online Resource Centre Contains updates, additional chapters on employment law, outline answers to student exercises in the text, and web links.
