The law has changed significantly since the previous edition of this title - particularly regarding new maternity rights, rights for temporary workers and the abolition of an employer's right to enforce retirement. Are you aware of the effect of these changes on your organisation? At a time when employers are faced with a maze of legislation and potential (and increasing) penalties, this book provides updated, comprehensive and, above all, practical guidance on employment law and personnel administration. In over 80 subject-specific and user-friendly sections, the book breaks the law down to provide real-life guidance and offers: - Detailed and practical advice on what to do in regards to employment law, rather than just why you should do it. - Instant access to expert guidance in an A to Z expanded index format. - Each subject is covered individually and also cross-referenced to related topics. - Checklists, examples, pitfall warnings and helpful tribunal decision case studies.
