Description and Table of Contents


The new edition of "LPC Employment Law" has been written principally for students taking the optional module in employment law on the Legal Practice Course, and is particularly suitable for those courses with either a corporate or private client bias. It offers a practical and comprehensive guide to the preventative measures that can be taken and the litigation problems most commonly presented to a solicitor in this area of the law. "Employment Law" has been fully revised and updated to cover all recent UK and European case law, statutory materials and developments in practice. It also offers case study questions at the end of each chapter and exercises throughout the book to test students' understanding of the key topics addressed. The book is accompanied by a dedicated companion web site containing updates in employment law.
