The Employment Law Pocketbook

Pocketbook cover

by Malcolm Martin and Tricia Jackson

The Employment Law Pocketbook will provide managers and HR professionals with a quick and ready grasp of employment law. Written from the perspective of employers rather than lawyers, the pocketbook takes a practical approach, presenting the facts clearly and concisely. Readers will be told how to avoid taking actions that prove indefensible in law and how to follow procedures that meet statutory requirements and can be shown to be fair. The pocketbook also explains what records need to be kept and when and where advice should be sought.

From making selection decisions and appointments to dismissals and redundancies, the content covers all aspects of employment law including working with trade unions, workplace and attendance problems, and health and safety matters.
