About the book
This booklet offers an informed guide to the contents of the latest employment rights legislation together with a critical analysis of the issues the legislation fails to address.
The authors – three trade union legal practitioners – bring their knowledge, understanding and support for fair rights and free unions to the pages of this very timely and informative publication.
The Employment Act 2008 covers three main aspects of employment rights and trade union freedoms – reflected in the three sections of this booklet:
- Part One outlines the new grievance and disciplinary procedures, the new ACAS Code of Practice and changes to Employment Tribunal procedures;
- Part Two outlines the main changes made to the National Minimum Wage (compensation, enforcement and powers of investigation) as well as new regulations aimed at better enforcing the NMW in relation to agency workers;
- Part Three considers the strengths and weaknesses of the so called “ASLEF Amendment” introduced in response to a European Court of Human Rights ruling that unions should be free to determine their own rules.
