About the book

This year’s edition of Labour Law Review is a timely reminder of how far our framework of law has developed in recent years and how far we still need to go before fairness at work can be achieved. As the authors point out, earlier editions of the Review were slim affairs of around 13 pages, reviewing no more than 50 cases. More recently, the number of cases to be reviewed means it is difficult to keep the Review under 40 pages.

The 2008 Review covers areas including industrial action with a particular emphasis on developments in the European Court of Justice, health and safety at work, working time, TUPE, unfair dismissal and all issues relating to discrimination. This year, one of the longer sections of the report, focuses on disability discrimination and the new DDA code of practice in particular. We have no doubt that this edition of Labour Law Review will once again offer an informed and accessible overview of the latest developments in employment law.
