This book should prove an easy to use and accessible self-help handbook on employment rights. Designed to have as broad appeal as possible, it will be both authoritative and topical. The emphasis is on presenting readers with their rights in plain English, cutting through the jargon that so often surrounds the law. Written by an employment lawyer and journalist, the overall objective was to produce a reference to the law that affects us all. The text contains 25 chapters (on topics such as interview and selection; contracts of employment; flexible working; bullying; maternity rights; redundancy), with each chapter consisting of a question and answer section, with replies to the most commonly asked questions, actual case histories, an easy to use listings guide to the relevant laws, and a "next steps" section.
