Employment Tribunals

A Practical Guide, 3rd Edition
Elaine Heslop, Isabel Manley and Christina Morton
Availability: Published

This indispensable guide to employment tribunals has been completely updated and revised. It provides detailed coverage of the legal and procedural issues involved in bringing a case to an employment tribunal, from both claimant and respondent perspectives.

The third edition takes account of:

  • the replacement of the 2004 Rules with the 2013 Rules
  • the abolition of fees as a result of the Supreme Court decision in R (on the application of UNISON) v. Lord Chancellor [2017] UKSC 51
  • the introduction of mandatory early conciliation through ACAS
  • the increased use of Presidential Guidance and Practice Directions.

Concise and portable, this book is ideal for use in tribunals. It has many practical features, including a model case that runs throughout the book, illustrating and clarifying the points made, and checklists that will assist in preparation and promote good practice.
