This is a complete resource of employment law and personnel practice. This book comes at a time when managers are faced with still more new legislation, obligations and potential penalties. This is an essentially practical book: in a straightforward, no-jargon manner it explains what the law is and then what to do, providing expert advice on every aspect of employment practice from recruitment, pay and incentives to maternity/paternity leave, personnel records, contracts, holidays, harassment, discipline and grievance procedures and performance management. Case studies of tribunal decisions add valuable extra guidance.
