Known for its detailed and authoritative approach, the authors of Smith & Wood's Employment Law provide a comprehensive, yet accessible guide to employment law. Clear accounts of essential case law and legislation are complemented by insightful commentary and critique to direct preparation for classes and assessments. The topics are carefully explained in their social and historical context, providing readers with an awareness of the fast-paced development of employment law and offering perceptive analysis of its future direction.

Chapter overviews give students a sense of what they can expect to learn as they read each section while a 'Review and Final Thoughts' feature concludes each chapter by emphasizing the key issues as well as highlighting areas of development and technical difficulty which may need further attention by students. Full references to further reading are provided throughout the book to help guide additional research, and helpful web links can be accessed via the Online Resource Centre which accompanies this book. Multiple choice questions with instant feedback give students the opportunity to test their understanding of the themes.
