About the book

This year’s Labour Law Highlights is produced against the backdrop of a newly elected Johnson Conservative Government and a yet to be defined Brexit settlement. We expect the next five years to be difficult for trade unions and their members. All the more reason for reps to arm themselves with an understanding of developments in labour law. While rumours about the possible contents of a proposed Employment Bill and Trade Deals abound, there are few recent statutory changes for this LLH to report.

However, our experts from Old Square Chambers have found plenty of judicial decisions to analyse, providing a wealth of materials from Tribunals through to the Supreme Court to assist trade unionists hoping to use case law to protect and promote the best interests of workers. So, whether it’s trade union rights, pay and conditions, employment rights or equality issues, the authors lead the readers through numerous judicial interpretations in a way that is clear, informative and we hope helpful in the year ahead.
