Format: Hardback
Price: £120.00

This textbook provides a detailed examination of the application of human rights law to employment and industrial relations.

Should female employees be entitled to wear a headscarf in the workplace for religious reasons? Can it ever be right for an employer to dismiss someone for personal Facebook posts written in their leisure time? What restrictions, if any, should be placed on the right to strike?

This innovative textbook provides an entry point for exploring these and other topical issues, enabling students to analyse the applicability of human rights to disputes between employers and workers in the UK. It offers a fresh perspective on the traditional topics of employment law as well as looking in greater depth at new issues such as social media.

Uniquely, the book considers all the international Conventions that are relevant for the law in the UK, especially the European Convention on Human Rights, the European Social Charter, Conventions of the International Labour Organisation, and the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union.

A central question that each of the chapters addresses is whether UK labour law and employment law is compatible with human rights law. Each chapter discusses on average 10 cases drawn from various jurisdictions, including the Court of Justice of the European Union and the European Court of Human Rights.

Written by a stellar team of authors, this textbook is an invaluable teaching aid for both postgraduate and undergraduate students.
