The purpose of this book is to explain to the practising manager and the practising trade unionist the way in which English labour law works. The layman confronted with a law book is inclined to ‘switch off’. He can hardly be blamed for this since lawyers, especially academic lawyers, have tried to pretend that the law is a mystery capable of being understood only by the initiated few. This is nonsense and the fault lies with us lawyers. Provided the trouble is taken to explain concepts in everyday language, unencumbered by Latin tags, any intelligent layman should be able to appreciate what is going on. This book has been written with the avowed aim of making law comprehensible to the layman. Only the layman will be able to judge whether the attempt has been successful or not.
