Written specifically for HR and Business students, Introduction to Employment Law is a clear and accessible guide to employment law and how it applies in practice. Covering everything from employment tribunals and discrimination to redundancy and termination of employment, this textbook doesn't assume any prior knowledge of the UK legal system and equips students with all the knowledge and skills that they need to take forward into the workplace. With coverage of both atypical and variation contracts including agency, part-time and fixed term workers as well as flexible working and zero hours contracts, this book ensures that students have a thorough understanding of all types of employment contracts.

Fully revised with all the latest legal updates and developments, this new edition includes coverage of hot topics such as the definition of a worker in the gig economy, the legal implications of GDPR and the ways the Taylor Review recommendations are changing employment law. Packed with pedagogical features to consolidate learning including chapter objectives, tasks, 'explore further' sections, key learning points and examples to work through, as well as a dedicated study skills chapter, Introduction to Employment Law is essential reading for all students studying the CIPD Level 5 Intermediate module in employment law as well as all those on undergraduate and postgraduate courses needing a thorough grounding in employment law. Online resources include lecture slides, case studies, multiple choice questions, annotated weblinks and an instructor's manual.

Review:

"Offers a jargon-free, highly accessible introduction to employment law for both HR practitioners and students at all levels." (Neil Pritchard, Business Undergraduate Programme Leader, North Wales Business School, Wrexham Glyndwr University)

"The fifth edition of this excellent textbook is a boon for CIPD students studying at levels 5 and 7. It has clarity without overkill, and the wide range of citations and case studies to work through make it an excellent tool for students and tutors alike. The section on study skills in employment law is of particular help to students who often struggle to know where to start looking when they begin researching legal issues." (Elspeth Woods, Programme Manager and CIPD tutor, Northampton College)

"Provides a valuable source of reference for students and HR practitioners. A clear and practical approach to the fundamentals of employment law, strengthened by critical and detailed examination of case law, gives the reader a thoroughly revised, comprehensive and accessible introduction to this key area of HRM practice." (Adelaide Shone, CIPD Lecturer, Cheshire College South and West)

"Kathy Daniel's Introduction to Employment Law has become a 'go to' textbook for employment law. It covers all aspects of the ever-changing landscape of employment law together with the background and context for UK law, and is written in a very accessible way with key learning points, the incorporation of important cases and suggestions for further research and study. Now in its fifth edition, it is vital for all HR and business students, as well as a resource for HR and business practitioner's continuing professional development." (Carole Parkes, Professor of Responsible Management, University of Winchester Business School)

"This is an excellent textbook for students of employment law - which includes most HR professionals at some point in their careers. The online resources are welcome and enhance learning options and teaching resources." (David Screen, Human Resource Management Tutor, Activate Learning 2018-11-15)
