Employment law has undergone a great deal of change over the past few years; most significantly the enactment of the Equality Act 2010 and the case law that has emerged as a result have irrevocably altered the legal landscape in relation to discrimination in the workplace. These developments have been fully explored in this new edition of A Practical Approach to Employment Law.
Now in its ninth edition, this book by John Bowers QC provides a comprehensive and systematic exploration of the principles and practice of employment law. It is structured to meet the requirements of the lawyer who needs to find practical solutions to practical problems. It provides a clear guide to all aspects of individual and collective employment law as it actually works today.
Key developments in this new edition include: extensive coverage of new rules and legislation such as the Equality Act 2010, the Enterprise & Regulatory Reform Act 2013, the Growth & Infrastructure Act 2013, the Trade Union Act 2016, and the new Employment Tribunal rules; as well as full consideration of relevant case law.
