About the book

Labour Law Highlights has become a vital staple in the Institute of Employment’s output over many years, and this year’s edition is no exception. Each year, this widely anticipated publication has outlined the major cases that shape our industrial relations landscape. In Labour Law Highlights 2023, a slightly reshaped Old Square Chambers team treat us to another detailed and comprehensive journey through the major judicial and statutory cases over the last twelve months, analysing the significance of each.

Whilst the political world has seen Government curtailments on trade union freedoms and the right to strike, several cases have reasserted the right to collective bargaining (including those involving Jiwanji and INEOS), following the Kostal case. In addition, the authors meticulously guide us through significant individual cases relating to disability, religion and belief protections, victimisation, whistleblowing, holiday pay and protection from detriment on trade union grounds.
