Publisher Description:

As the successor to Smith & Wood's Industrial Law, this work continues its predecessor's reputation for both comprehensive coverage and lucidity of presentation. With a new and improved structure and layout, the ninth edition maps closely onto employment law courses and provides an invaluable resource for students. Individual topics are presented in a logical framework, allowing students to analyze and understand what can initially appear to be an intimidating diverse and complex area of the law.
Thoroughly revised and updated and covering all the major developments in the subject since the eighth edition, it includes the standard disciplinary and grievance procedure, the 2006 Transfer of Undertakings, the new TUPE Regulations and age discrimination.
