The Modern Law of Employment offers a wide-ranging, contemporary and readable guide to employment law for all students of the subject whatever their course. Utilising a jargon-free writing style that provides a logical progression of ideas and legal principles, this is the ideal textbook for students seeking a clear guide to employment law.

Informed by domestic case and statutory law as well as European legal jurisprudence, The Modern Law of Employment considers all aspects relating to the employment relationship between employer and employee at both an individual and collective level. Moreover, rather than treating collective issues as an afterthought, this book comprises three substantial chapters dealing with internal union and union-employer relations. Both critical and contextual in its nature, this thought-provoking companion is the ideal starting point for all undergraduate students of employment law. Key learning features include: for-thought questions throughout each chapter to encourage reflection and understanding; short chapter summaries to distil and reflect upon the main points raised; an extensive list of further reading and relevant websites at the end of each chapter to encourage further learning pathways.
