The fifth edition of "Employment Law: An Advisers' Handbook" has been fully revised and updated to ensure you are up-to-date on new family friendly laws and discrimination law. This step-by-step guide covers all the employment issues you are most likely to encounter and gives sound advice in jargon-free language on: contractual matters; wages; unfair dismissal; redundancy; TUPE; equality and discrimination; remedies; procedures; and running an Employment Tribunal case. The law is explained clearly and concisely, suported by key-point checklists and useful evidence and how to obtain it. The fifth edition contains new law on: discrimination on grounds of sexual orientation and on grounds of religion; RRA s71 and the Race Relations (Amendment) Act; work and family life - right to request flexi-working, part-time work regulations, adoption leave, and paternity leave; employees on fixed-term contracts; and Equal pay questionnaires. The book also now includes: major amendments to discrimination law on grounds of race; practical checklists on the calculation of the minimum wage, whistleblowing and unilateral variation; a new section on TUPE and local government; expanded sections on whistleblowing, the Data Protection Act and the Human Rights Act; and cross-references to sources of specialist and additional information on the web. If you are a novice or non-specialist, this book should be a useful introduction to the main issues in employment law. If you are a more experienced or specialist adviser, it provides a quick and accessible aide memoir which complements the more detailed practitioners' texts.
