Employment law: an adviser’s handbook, now in its fourteenth edition, is the definitive text on employment law for the adviser. It is uniquely focused on the claimant and covers the wide range of employment law problems in a clear and practical form. It aims to make this ever-evolving, and increasingly complex, area of law accessible to both employment law specialists and non-lawyers.
Employment law: an adviser's handbook provides up to date coverage of UK and European employment and discrimination law. There is clear and succinct commentary on case-law and thorough consideration of the relevant domestic legislation, EU treaties and directives.
There is step-by-step guidance for advisers running unfair dismissal and discrimination cases with as much space devoted to evidence, precedents and checklists as to setting out the law. Each chapter starts with a useful summary of key points and there is extensive cross-referencing throughout. The main text is supported by practical resources including sample case papers, a glossary and signposts to other sources of information.
This edition has been updated to include:
•issues related to COVID-19
•Discussion of the practicalities of remote hearings
•An expanded section on detriments for refusing to work in dangerous circumstances
•New coverage of law and the menopause
•the new entitlement to parental bereavement leave
•the effects of Brexit
Employment law: an adviser's handbook is the essential guide to employment law for all claimant advisers, trade union representatives, lawyers and any individual looking for a comprehensive, yet accessible, guide to employment law.
