About the book
Since taking office in 1997 the government has introduced a national minimum wage for the first time in this country, and delivered the manifesto promise to implement a statutory right to trade union recognition. The GCHQ ban has been lifted, and the government has committed itself more wholeheartedly to the implementation of European social policy than its predecessors.
The Institute of Employment Rights was invited by a number of trade unions to consider what steps might be taken in the future to build on these achievements: how to build on the new fairness at work legislation.
In responding to the invitation, we hope that this book will help inform the debate about how to continue the development of employment law in a manner consistent with a number of core values, including in particular: (i) equality of opportunity, (ii) social justice, (iii) democracy and citizenship, (iv) human rights and (v) fairness at work.
