Individual Employment Law has been significantly revised and updated to include legislative and caselaw developments from 2000 to 2008. It gives an overview of employment contracts and employment relationships as they are dealt with both by common law and statute, including human rights issues, occupational health and safety, and industrial standards legislation. The book treats obligations of both employers and employees, the enforcement of employment rights in multiple forums, and contains an in-depth examination of termination of employment.
"England's text goes beyond being a useful reference for students and practitioners of employment law. It is a must read for human resources professionals, and also for the new breed of e-commerce lawyers who are starting to provide high tech companies and dot-com startups with legal advice on employment relations."
