The constant flow of legislation means that employers must look carefully at their contracts to ensure that they comply with current law.
This book sets out the relevant law as well as containing all the precedents that the advisor is likely to need in practice. Covering everything from recruitment to termination, it will be invaluable to all advising on employment contracts.
...From the Preface
The, third edition of this book has, once again, had to grapple with the many developments in employment law over the last four years and the task has been to work out how the substantive law translates into precedents.
The statutory and case law developments over the last four years are too numerous to summarise in this foreword, though I was fortunate indeed to be spared having to deal with the cases thrown up by the much derided statutory disciplinary and dismissal and grievance procedures. Whilst the new ACAS Code and Guidance may be seen as a return to the pre-statutory regime there are now difference traps for the unwary and I have attempted o set out at least some of these in the relevant chapters.
The book has taken on a different structure with the commentary from previous editions now a standalone text and the precedents all collated together. I am pleased that the publishers have provided a disc which will make life easier for who do utilise the precedents (at their own risk!).
Contracts of Employment is part of the series of three, together with Unfair Dismissal and Wrongful Dismissal It is hoped to publish a new edition of Unfair Dismissal during 2010 and Wrongful Dismissal the year after so that each book takes on a three year cycle.
Updates will be found from time to time on the Littleton Chambers website. I intend to cross refer the monthly case bulletin I produce to the relevant parts of the books. In this way, it should be possible to update the books on a regular basis.
