Suitable for undergraduates and postgraduates studying UK Labour and Employment law, this book is a must-read for those wishing to excel in the field.

Labour Law Reviews

'This new edition offers a timely, authoritative and vivid account of the tribulations of UK labour law in the Age of Austerity. An unparalleled level of detail and contextual analysis of the incessant erosion of trade union and workers' rights, and the perils connected with a resurgent vision of labour standards, including fundamental labour rights, as a hindrance to competitiveness and economic growth.' Nicola Countouris, University College London
