An essential guide for every worker and employer in the UK, this book is a highly accessible self-help handbook on employment rights. The emphasis is on presenting readers with their rights in plain English, cutting through the jargon that often surrounds the law. It contains 25 chapters on topics such as interview and selection, contracts of employment, flexible working, bullying, maternity rights and redundancy. Each chapter consists of a question and answer section, with replies to the most commonly asked questions, actual case histories, an easy to use listings guide to the relevant laws, and a 'Next Steps' section.
