About this book

Introduction

MACMILLAN LAW MASTERS

EMPLOYMENT LAW

Ideal for:

Law Degrees
Common Professional Examinations
Business Studies Degrees
Human Resource Management (IPD) Courses
Legal Practice Courses

Employment law is probably the fastest moving area in the law today, with statutory changes, European decisions and new cases changing the detail very rapidly. It is a dynamic and changing subject, something that the students find interesting, but at the same time difficult to grasp.

This text steers the student confidently through the complexities. As well as exploring statute and case law, it provides summary points at the end of chapters and useful exercises for each area discusses. Important features include the Employment Rights (dispute Resolution) Act 1998, the Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998, the National Minimum Wage Act 1998 and the Working Time Regulations 1998. In addition future proposals contained in the Government White Paper "Fairness at Work" and the resulting Employement Relations Bill are discussed.

Deborah J Lockton is Deputy Head, Department of Law at De Montfort University. She has specialised in Employment Law for many years, and has acted as consultant for a variety of companies. She conducts specialised in-house training courses for companies, as well as courses for this subject. Her other books include Effective Contracts for Employment, Student Statutes: Employment Law and Questions and Answers in Employment Law.
