Employment Law is the most complete and accessible introduction to the subject, suitable for students from a variety of backgrounds including HRM and business management.

The expert author team combine a wealth of knowledge in teaching, examining, and practising employment law to ensure the reader has a firm understanding of legal principles, in both an academic and professional context. Case exhibits in every chapter illustrate employment law in action, whilst activities test the reader's understanding of the law and its application in the real-world. Together, they enable students to effectively develop their knowledge of current legislation and maximize their learning. In addition, a dedicated chapter on preparing and presenting a case gives the reader a unique opportunity to demonstrate their understanding using a fictional scenario, through which they can gain a greater insight into the challenges faced by those required to prepare and deliver a case before an employment tribunal. As a result, Employment Law is an essential textbook for students seeking to develop their academic and professional skills, as well as foster their understanding of a subject that directly affects business managers and their employees.

This book is supported by an integrated Online Resource Centre.
