Front Cover
Oxford University Press, 2016 - Labor laws and legislation - 885 pages
Employment Law in Context combines extracts from leading cases and articles with insightful and sophisticated author commentary to provide the reader with a full, critical understanding of employment law. As well as providing a thorough grounding in individual labour law, and drawing attention to key and current areas of debate, this title offers the reader detailed analysis of the social, economic, political, and historical context in which employment law operates.

An innovative running case study contextualizes employment law and demonstrates its practical applications by following the life-cycle of a company from incorporation, through expansion, to liquidation. Reflection points and examples encourage the development of critical thinking skills and students' ability to view the issues practically.

The text is supported by an Online Resource Centre hosting:
- four supplementary chapters on collective employment law to facilitate a broader understanding of the subject
- additional reading lists to accompany topics signposted in each chapter and annotated web links to key online resources to direct further research
- a flashcard glossary helps students test their understanding of terms highlighted and defined in the book
