Reliably updated by Ian Smith and Aaron Baker, this popular textbook maintains its reputation for balancing authority with accessibility. Providing comprehensive coverage of all the key employment law topics this new edition continues to offer unrivalled support for undergraduate and postgraduate students alike.

Recently revised and restructured, Smith & Wood's Employment Law draws on the extensive teaching and practical experience of its authors to provide students with a clear explanation of essential legislation and case detail while also offering incisive academic commentary and critical detail to help with essay preparation and class work.

Throughout the book topics are carefully explained in their social and historical context, providing readers with an insight into the fast-paced development of employment law and offering perceptive analysis of its future direction. In particular, the effect of the Equality Act 2010 and the development of discrimination law are considered in detail.

This book is also accompanied by an Online Resource Centre which includes further reading suggestions and useful weblinks to support independent study plus self-test questions with instant feedback to help consolidate your learning and prepare for exams.
