Employment Law Handbook
5th edition

Henry Scrope, Daniel Barnett and Keira Gore


Now in its fifth edition, the Employment Law Handbook provides a comprehensive overview of the main topics within employment law.

Its easy-to-use format makes it an ideal reference guide for the non-specialist practitioner and a handy aide memoir for specialists. Fully updated, this new edition covers a range of key developments in employment law, including:

  • Equality Act 2010
  • changes in redundancy, maternity provisions and the retirement age
  • the developing regimes on age and disability discrimination
  • Bribery Act 2012
  • caselaw under TUPE 2006.


"An essential addition to the employment lawyer's armoury. Weighty enough to cover the crucial areas and yet concise enough to carry in the briefcase. Equipped with a very useful new developments section."

Charles Price,
