Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Review from previous edition "Blackstone's Employment Law Practice provides an excellent guide to the increasingly complex world of practice and procedure in employment law, both in tribunals and the civil courts. The appendices are particularly useful. No employment lawyer should be without it."--Barry J. Clarke, Partner, Russell Jones & Walker, Cardiff and national chairman of the Employment Lawyers' Association

"Practitioners have been waiting for a one-volume compendium like this for years. It is often the only book you need to take to the tribunal...Every authoritative statement you need at your fingertips."--Martin Budsworth, King's Chambers, Manchester

"Blackstone's Employment Law Practice 2006 will become a regular sight in the briefcases and rucksacks of those lawyers who neither want to lug round numerous volumes of Harvey on Industrial Relations and Employment Law and are not yet ready to trust a Wi-Fi connection to the internet"--Jeremy Nixon, Bird&Bird, the New Law Journal

"This is a new and innovative volume that deserves a place in the employment law library"--Philip Wood, Dawsons, the ELA Briefing

"It is extremely valuable to have all the key areas of procedure and practice summarized into a single volume. I found the sections on tribunal practice to be the most valuable, set out in a clearly accessible manner with helpful explanations of difficult points. The legislation is well selected, and the summaries of the substantive law proved to be useful reminders of the key issues. And all this for a price far more reasonable than one might imagine for a work of this quality."--Geoffrey Mead, Partner, Collyer Bristow

"This book is very useful for union lawyers, officers and representatives dealing with employment law casework, as it combines substantive law with clear explanations of procedural rules in one volume."--Lucy Anderson, Senior Policy Office (Solicitor), TUC

"The volume is a very useful, reliable and portable work of reference both for busy practitioners and those who may not appear in employment tribunals regularly"--Janet Gaymer CBE, Senior Partner, Simmons & Simmons
