Following the election of an historic third term Labour government, this year’s edition of Labour Law Review is a timely reminder of how far our framework of law has developed in recent years and how far we still need to go before fairness at work can be envisaged.

Written by two leading Barristers from Old Square Chambers, the authors note how the Review has significantly grown –and this year is no exception. As usual the range of issues covered is broad – recognition and the CAC; industrial action; definition of an employee; working time regulations; unfair dismissal; TUPE and human rights. This year, the cases reported demonstrate an increased use of some of the newer rights, particularly those which lie at the heart of the work/life balance – protections for part-time and fixed-term workers and the right to parental/dependents leave.

As usual, the authors concentrate on those cases which they believe have made a significant difference or which provide useful guidance for workers and their representatives. This short and accessible publication is a useful reminder of complicated legal cases and an excellent barometer of labour law developments.
