This work has been structured to meet the requirements of the lawyer who needs to find practical solutions to practical problems. It provides a clear guide to all aspects of individual and collective labour law as it actually works today. This sixth edition brings the book up to date (including the Employment Bill passed in June 2002) and relevant case law. It also features an analysis of the Human Rights Act in the employment sphere.
