Redundancy: The Law and Practice explores redundancy law from a practical but also authoritative and analytical standpoint. Containing sections on redundancy payments, unfair dismissal, and collective redundancies, as well as a number of practical tools, the book is an invaluable resource for practitioners working in the area. Now in its third edition, the book has been fully revised and extended to accommodate the extensive changes in legislation that have been implemented since the publication of the second edition in 2001. It analyses the wealth of recent case law and legislative changes, particularly with reference to unfair dismissal, discrimination, collective consultation and voluntary serverance arrangements. Redundancy: The Law and Practice is an invaluable reference for any practitioner working in the area of employment law.
