As the Government undertakes its review of the Employment Relations Act, this year’s edition of Labour Law Review provides its usual authoritative insight into the main statutory and legislative developments in labour law.
The authors – two leading Barristers from Old Square Chambers – guide us through the possibilities provided by new legislation while also highlighting the problems associated with existing laws. The Review therefore provides a timely reminder of the pitfalls in our legislation and how the UK’s framework of law could be improved. Issues covered include the definition of industrial action, the role played by staff associations in recognition applications, TUPE and the new regulations, agency workers and their employment status, the extension of the working time regulations to excluded sectors as well as the important question of holiday payments. There is extensive discussion of the new discrimination regulations as well as a summary of leading cases. Finally the Review considers issues relating to employment tribunals such as time limits, compensation awards and procedures.
Once again, we are pleased to add to our Labour Law Review series with another readable and highly informative publication.
