The 13th edition of this popular textbook provides a concise and user-friendly account of the essentials of employment law while offering critical and contextual insights into the debates shaping this fast-paced area of law.

An extremely clear writing style allows the text to remain accessible and student-focussed, while providing detailed explanations and analysis of the law. The text also includes diagrams and chapter summaries throughout to aid student understanding, while further reading suggestions assist with essay preparation and research.

Setting the subject in context, Honeyball & Bowers' Textbook on Employment Law considers both individual and collective issues as well as examining the increasing role of the EU in UK employment law.
