Aiming to cover all the issues commonly encountered by employment advisers, this volume comprises a guide to employment law, detailed explanation of the relevant evidence and comprehensive guidance on running a case. It deals with the contract of employment, unfair dismissal, redundancy, discrimination and the provisions of the Wages Act 1986. The authors have set out to explain the law concisely and accurately without using jargon. Cases and sources are footnoted, to avoid obscuring the text, and key points are summarized and highlighted at the end of each section. Special emphasis is given to advice on what evidence to collect, and how, and practical guidance on preparing and running industrial tribunal cases. These features are complemented by precedents and checklists. Intended for advisers working in industry, commerce, the unions, citizens advice bureaux and voluntary organizations, the book should also be of help to non-specialist lawyers, trainee solicitors and those undertaking courses at the Inns of Court School of Law.
For students taking degrees in industrial relations and management studies or examinations with the Institute of Personnel Management, it offers a practical introduction to the subject.
