Employment law is a growth area for lawyers. The latest civil procedure rules affect the way claims are dealt with. This title should be of interest to all practitioners in the area. It considers the principles relating to breach of contract in the employment context.

It sets out the complex rules relating to assessment of compensation, reduction in awards and the tax position. Of particular importance will be reforms to civil practice brought about by Woolf, and this book considers the impact of the new rules on claims for wrongful dismissal in the Courts.
