Reviews

This is an excellent textbook for students of employment law - which includes most HR professionals at some point in their careers. The online resources are welcome and enhance learning options and teaching resources. --David Screen, Human Resource Management Tutor, Activate Learning The fifth edition of this excellent textbook is a boon for CIPD students studying at levels 5 and 7. It has clarity without overkill, and the wide range of citations and case studies to work through make it an excellent tool for students and tutors alike. The section on study skills in employment law is of particular help to students who often struggle to know where to start looking when they begin researching legal issues. --Elspeth Woods, Programme Manager and CIPD tutor, Northampton College Provides a valuable source of reference for students and HR practitioners. A clear and practical approach to the fundamentals of employment law, strengthened by critical and detailed examination of case law, gives the reader a thoroughly revised, comprehensive and accessible introduction to this key area of HRM practice. --Adelaide Shone, CIPD Lecturer, Cheshire College South and West Offers a jargon-free, highly accessible introduction to employment law for both HR practitioners and students at all levels. --Neil Pritchard, Business Undergraduate Programme Leader, North Wales Business School, Wrexham Glyndwr University Kathy Daniel's Introduction to Employment Law has become a 'go to' textbook for employment law. It covers all aspects of the ever-changing landscape of employment law together with the background and context for UK law, and is written in a very accessible way with key learning points, the incorporation of important cases and suggestions for further research and study. Now in its fifth edition, it is vital for all HR and business students, as well as a resource for HR and business practitioner's continuing professional development. --Carole Parkes, Professor of Responsible Management, University of Winchester Business School
