Employment law: an adviser's handbook, now it its tenth edition, is the definitive text on employment law for the adviser. It is uniquely focused on the claimant and covers the wide range of employment law problems in a clear and practical form. It aims to make this ever-evolving, and increasingly complex, area of law accessible to both employment law specialists and non-lawyers.

'There is probably no other book that provides so much information for such a reasonable cost.' Adviser

'Full of invaluable, practical advice.' Briefings

'Written by an acknowledged expert in employment law ... intensely practical.' New Law Journal

Employment law: an adviser's handbook provides up to date coverage ofUK and European employment and discrimination law.  There is clear and succinct commentary on the rapidly growing body of case-law and thorough consideration of the relevant domestic legislation, EU treaties and directives.

There is step-by-step guidance for advisers running unfair dismissal and discrimination cases with as much space devoted to evidence, precedents and checklists as to setting out the law. Each chapter starts with a useful summary of key points and there is extensive cross-referencing throughout. The main text is supported by practical resources including sample case papers, a glossary and signposts to other sources of information.

Since the last edition, the coalition government has systematically cut back on employment rights, as well as making radical changes to the tribunal system by removing non-legal members from unfair dismissal claims, charging fees and (from 2014) introducing compulsory pre-claim conciliation. This edition aims to guide the adviser though all the recent changes and developments and is up to date to include the 2013 employment tribunal procedural rules.

This tenth edition consolidates this handbook's reputation as the essential guide to employment law for all claimant advisers, trade union representatives, lawyers and any individual looking for a comprehensive, yet accessible, guide to employment law.

Tamara Lewis is an acknowledged employment law expert with an in-depth understanding of the needs of advisers and trade union representatives.
