The dynamic growth of employment law in recent years has created a potential minefield not only for students but also for experienced practitioners. By highlighting the most common causes of confusion, this book shows the way to an understanding of the subject.;The book covers most of the elements found in a typical employment law course and its treatment of exam technique should give students the confidence required to succeed in examinations and coursework.;This revised edition incorporates the consolidation of the law and procedure relating to employment protection achieved by the Employment Rights Act 1996 and the Industrial Tribunals Act 1996, and a number of recent significant developments in case law.;Ann E. Holmes and Richard W. Painter are co-authors of ""Cases and Materials on Employment Law"".
