LRD publishes unique guide to employment law cases
LRD is publishing, for the first time, a detailed guide to legal cases to assist reps who are preparing to submit employment tribunal claims, as well as those involved in negotiations who need to know the latest legal position.
Case law at work 2004-05 is a unique source of information on recent employment law cases - published as a companion to LRD's best-selling Law at work. This new guide, Case law at work 2004-05, 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, although LRD's negotiators' journal Workplace Report regularly contains case law updates.
Covering case law examples on the employment contract, rights to pay and conditions, union 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.
Judging by the popularity of LRD's annually updated guide, Law at work, union reps are keen to have as much information about the law as possible. Case law at work 2004-05 provides essential extra detail, and is a valuable companion to Law at work 2004.
