Employment Law is a unique textbook specifically tailored to the needs of Business and Management students. No prior experience of the law is assumed, and the text provides a truly comprehensive approach to the subject at an introductory level. The engaging and accessible writing style is combined with a wealth of pedagogical features, including practical examples, activity boxes and chapter summaries. These learning tools guide students through the fundamentals of their course and ensure a lasting understanding of key themes and concepts. Debates feature in every chapter to foster critical thinking, while workplace examples clearly outline the practical complexities of employment law without simplifying them.

Divided into seven parts, Employment Law covers the most recent developments in this exciting field. Chapters have been revised and updated to inform students of current changes in all areas, including discrimination, unfair dismissal and immigration law. The text also fully reflects emergent changes to the UK political and economic landscape, from the credit crunch to the coalition government. A section devoted entirely to employment law in action reveals to students the practicalities of preparing and presenting a legal case. The text is supported by an Online Resource Centre providing students with self-test questions, annual updates from the authors and suggested further reading.
