Unfair dismissal legislation has been an important element of statutory employment protection for more than 30 years. Anderman: The Law of Unfair Dismissal provides an analysis of the current state of the law so as to serve as a framework for understanding and following new developments in the law. It therefore provides the means with which to analyse and prepare new dismissal cases for employment tribunal hearings and gives some indication as to the likelihood of success alongside possible grounds for appeal from tribunal decisions.

This new edition has been fully updated to consider legislative developments such as the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992 and the Employment Rights Act 1996. There is also full coverage of many recent developments in UK and European case law which have established precedents of major importance as well as the ACAS Code of Practice on Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures.

The Law of Unfair Dismissal will provide a clear and comprehensive analysis of the law of unfair dismissal which will be of assistance to legal practitioners, students of employment law, employers, trade union officials, personnel officers and legal advisers.
