In its third edition (previously entitled Labour Law), Employment Law Core Text has emerged as an extremely valuable student text, providing balanced coverage of the key legislative provisions impacting on employment relationships. Tailored to meet the needs of employment law modules, the authors' straightforward approach ensures that the text guides students concisely through the ever changing legislative maze of employment law. Areas of recent development are clearly highlighted, particularly relating to discrimination and equal pay, which are now chapters in their own right. The chapter summaries, self-test questions, and further reading sections enable students to critically self-test themselves as well as aiding exam preparation.
