The Legal Practice Course
manuals provide a guide to the law, practice and procedure that are at the heart of the Legal Practice Course. Annually updated, they are written by expert teams of qualified lawyers and current tutors for trainee solicitors on the LPC. Each manual explains the relevant substantive and procedural law and, where appropriate, contains sample precedents, documents, and checklists. Employment Law has been developed primarily for students taking an elective module in employment law on the LPC and is suitable for courses with either a corporate or a private client focus. The 2016 edition continues to provide a practical and comprehensive guide to the subject, and has been fully updated to include recent UK and European case law and developments in employment law practice. In its 2016 edition, the book covers changes to shared parental leave, updates to the role of ACAS, changes to the definition of working hours, new case law affecting directors and shareholders and overtime pay, and minimum pay rates. Examples and sample documents are included throughout the book to help students understand the practical application of the law, preparing them for the situations they may encounter once qualified. Detailed information is presented clearly and concisely, with the use of flowcharts and diagrams to provide a visual overview of complex processes and areas of common difficulty. End-of-chapter summaries and self-test questions are also used throughout the book, to help students consolidate their learning and identify areas for further study.Less
