The Human Rights Act 1998 is already having a profound effect on the UK legal system. The ""Blackstone's Human Rights"" series is a collection of publications providing expert, practical advice for lawyers to meet this challenge, focusing on the implications of the Act in key areas of practice. This volume provides a comprehensive guide to the impact of the Human Rights Act on UK employment law. It addresses the basic concepts of Convention law and provides a summary of the key Convention rights: Article 4: Prohibition of slavery and forced labour Article 6: Right to a fair trial Article 8: Right to respect for family and private life Article 9: Freedom of thought, conscience and religion Article 11: Freedom of assembly and association Article 14: Prohibition of discrimination Protocol 1, Article 1: Protection of property.;The Human Rights Act will affect employment law at almost every level: from decisions about what is reasonable in an unfair dismissal context to the procedure in the employment tribunal; from decisions about e-mail policies at work to discrimination against persons of different faiths.
