Are your line managers and your HR team aware of the changes that affect employment legislation?

The law has changed significantly since the previous edition of this title. In this revised and updated, 12th edition of The A-Z of Employment Practice, David Martin covers the latest developments within the complex area of employment law.

At a time when employers are faced with a maze of legislation and potential (and increasing) penalties, this book provides updated, comprehensive and, above all, practical guidance on employment law and personnel administration.

In over 80 subject-specfic and user-friendly sections, the book breaks the law down to provide real-life guidance and offers:

  • Detailed and practical advice on what to do in regards to employment law, rather than just why you should do it.
  • Instant access to expert guidance in an A to Z expanded index format.
  • Each subject is covered individually and also cross-referenced to related topics.
  • Checklists, examples, pitfall warnings and helpful tribunal decision case studies.


This book covers everything you need to know about good employment practice … This is a really useful book. Every manager should have one.’

Professional Manager

This book will be of value to all businesses, particularly perhaps smaller businesses where the director/owner needs to be his or her own personnel or HR manager … a valuable guide for every manager and would-be leader.’

John Sunderland, Chairman, Cadbury Schweppes PLC
