'This book sets out to provide a guide to rights at work. It does so in lucid style, whilst, at the same time, seeking to place the law in its political and historical context ...a useful one for the trade unionist.' Labour Research 'Most useful for law students, trade unionists and non-specialists, and a good start for any lawyer changing specialisms or wanting a clear picture of the current state of play and how we got there.' Law Society Gazette This new edition of the successful handbook Employment Rights is fully updated and revised to include new material on all recent employment law. Employment Rights is a well-established text and reference point on all aspects of labour law - in particular those outside the legal profession. Coverage is comprehensive and includes recruitment and selection; contracts (and changes to them); wages; discrimination; unfair dismissal and redundancy; health and safety; trade union rights; and work-related benefits. This new edition has been expanded to include coverage of developments such as the Employment Act 2002, Tax Credits Act 2002, EC Employment, Social Policy, the European Convention of Human Rights; and reform of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 and the Industrial Tribunals Act 1996.
