Written and edited by Selwyn Bloch QC and Kate Brearley (Stephenson Harwood) with contributions from leading practitioners in the field, this textbook provides a comprehensive yet highly practical analysis of the law and practice in this area of employment disputes, setting out appropriate strategies from both the employer’s and employee’s perspective.
