Employment Law Handbook, 7th edition

Daniel Barnett, Gus Baker, Stephen Butler

Overview

The Employment Law Handbook provides comprehensive coverage of the main topics within employment law.

The all-new seventh edition of this popular book has been substantially rewritten to provide a practical and thorough consideration of all difficult employment law issues, with a special focus on the problems HR professionals and employment lawyers may encounter, such as the increase in claims flowing from the Supreme Court's abolition of fees in Unison v The Lord Chancellor.

Fully updated, this edition covers a range of new and anticipated developments in employment law, including:

  • worker status, including gig economy workers
  • holiday pay calculation
  • developments in unfair dismissal and discrimination law
  • Acas early conciliation
  • the abolition of the fees regime.

Its easy-to-use format makes it an ideal reference guide for general practitioners and a handy aide-memoire for specialists.
