The 8th edition of Deborah Lockton’s excellent text upon Employment Law has continued with the high standard of clarity, practical application, and legal insight demonstrated by her previous editions. The text contains fine descriptions of current substantive law across the full range of employment law matters, including relevant trade union law, and combines these with pertinent practical examples of application, in a highly readable and stimulating manner. It is a superb account and a must-read for students, practitioners, and those working in the field of human resources. -Professor Alan Benstead, Emeritus Professor of Law and Pro Vice-Chancellor, University of the West of England.
