Employment Law is the core textbook for the CIPD Level 7 Advanced Employment Law module and is ideal for all HR professionals and business leaders who need a clear understanding of the area, as well as those studying the subject on postgraduate and undergraduate HRM or business degrees. It takes the reader step-by-step through everything that they need to know, including the formation of the Contract of Employment, discrimination, health and safety in the workplace, unfair dismissal and redundancy. Easy to read and navigate, and full of case studies and useful examples that encourage deeper thinking, this fully updated 14th edition provides a thorough theoretical grounding in employment law that can be applied in practice.

This new edition of Employment Law is completely-up-to-date with the latest cases and legislation, including the Trade Union Act 2016 and the Enterprise Act 2016, offers new content on the enforcement of tribunal awards, zero hours contracts and migrant workers, and provides an up-to-date analysis of anti-discrimination law, the national living wage and the 'Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006' (TUPE). Online resources such as PowerPoint slides, extra case studies, annotated web links and HR-inform updates will support your learning and enable you to apply the theory in practice.
