The Law of Termination of Employment Eighth edition
Why should you buy The Law of Termination of Employment Eighth edition
This well-established and authoritative analysis of the rules governing termination of employment provides coverage of the statutory and common law rights, as well as procedural considerations. It also deals with problems beyond termination such as competition from ex-employees, and worked calculations of compensation in unfair dismissal cases illustrate how the law operates in practice.
The new edition of The Law of Termination of Employment has been thoroughly updated to take account of major developments in law and practice, including:
- The demise of the statutory grievance and disciplinary procedures and their replacement with the ACAS Code
- The introduction of Agency Workers Regulations
- The new costs regime and relevant case-law
- Future developments such as the Government's consultation on raising/reviving continuity two years qualifying period and Tribunal reform
Throughout the text, recent case-law is analysed, including the definition of employee (Autoclenz and Muschett) and dismissal (Willoughby v CF Capital plc), constructive dismissal (Hunter v Timber Components), and fairness of the dismissal (City of Edinburgh Council v Dickson).
The Law of Termination of Employment is essential reading for all employment lawyers and human resources personnel who require a detailed knowledge of this complicated area of law.
