Just published: the second guide in a unique series on employment case law
Case law at work 2005-06 is the second booklet in the Case law at work series from the Labour Research Department (LRD). It is a detailed guide to legal cases aimed at union reps and anyone else who needs to keep up to date with developments in employment rights.
Case law at work is published as a companion to LRD's best-selling Law at work. The 2005-06 edition contains clear summaries of important employment law cases that have been decided by the Employment Appeal Tribunal, the Court of Appeal, the House of Lords and the European Court of Justice. Many of the cases will not have appeared in other legal publications.
The booklet contains examples from the past 12 months of case law covering the employment contract, rights to pay and conditions, unions and collective organisation, discrimination at work, sick pay, dismissal, redundancy and more. Reps will find this an invaluable guide for negotiations and to help prepare for submitting tribunal claims.
Union reps need as much information about the law as possible. Case law at work 2005-06 provides that essential extra detail, and is a valuable companion to Law at work 2005.
