Reader Review(s)

"This book presents the issues in employment law in innovative ways and successfully puts the law in its political, social and economic context. The range of different materials stimulate discussion and debate [and it is] attractive to students as it presents the law in a clear and accessible fashion, is topical, and provides many activities to help students to cement their learning." - Lisa Rogers, Senior Lecturer, Birmingham City University. 


"The real life context provided in this book is extremely rich and appropriate. It will prove very useful in engaging students in a fuller appreciation of the legal issues raised." - Carol Kilgannon, Lecturer/Programme leader LLB, Winchester University.
