Product description

Why should you buy Butterworths Employment Law Handbook 30th edition

Butterworths Employment Law Handbook is an indispensable reference source of fully-updated statutory, non-statutory and European materials relating to employment law in England and Wales and Scotland. Cross-references to Harvey on Industrial Relations and Employment Law are included, providing a convenient reference tool for use in tribunals.

Key updates for the 30th edition include:

  • Significant changes to the organisation and procedures of Employment tribunals, by the Judicial Review and Courts Bill
  • Changes to the Employment Tribunal rules of procedure, particularly affecting ACAS Early Conciliation (SI 2021/1037 refers)
  • The Public Service Pensions and Judicial Offices Bill, which makes changes to the terms of appointment of Employment Judges and Employment Tribunal lay members
  • Implementation of parts of the Trade Union Act 2016 (on 1 April 2022) which principally affect the powers and procedures of the certification officer (the Regulator of trade unions and employers’ associations)


The last two editions of the Handbook have featured the legislation, and non-statutory Directions, which embodied the government’s response to the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic on employment. The principal governing statute, the Coronavirus Act 2020, had an in-built two year lifespan, and most, although not quite all, of its provisions (and therefore also nearly all of the subordinate legislation made under it) expired on 24 March 2022. This material has therefore been removed from this edition. It should, however, be noted that some relevant materials remain in place, such as the amendments to the EAT Practice Direction (extended to September 2022), and the Employment Tribunal Presidents’ Road Map for 2022–23 (replacing that for 2021–22), both of which are included in Part 5.
