As we head towards the possibility of an historic third term Labour Government, this year’s Labour Law Review provides a timely reminder of the strengths and weaknesses of the UK’s framework of employment law.

Written by two leading Barristers from Old Square Chambers, the authors remind us of the advances made in employment law (minimum wage, statutory recognition, improved maternity rights). They go on to urge readers to push for further improvements and welcome the prospect of a Labour manifesto that positively takes forward the labour agenda following the agreements apparently reached between the Government and trade unions over the summer period.

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, a significant section of the Review is dedicated to issues of discrimination, including the new strands of discrimination introduced via the European Framework Directive. Also discussed are the new procedures for employment tribunals, due to come into force in October 2004.
