Honeyball & Bowers’ Textbook on Employment Law provides a concise account of the essentials of employment law while offering critical and contextual insights into the debates shaping this area of law. This volume considers both individual and collective issues as well as examining the role of the EU in UK employment law. A separate chapter on human rights looks at the role human rights legislation plays in the development of employment law. The title takes account of new Supreme Court decisions including Bates van Winkelhof on the working status of partners; Hounga on race discrimination; Chhabra on the implied contractual right to a fair disciplinary procedure and E. Ivor Hughes Education Foundation on collective redundancies consultation.

New legislation covered includes the Modern Slavery Act 2015 concerning trafficking of workers and slavery; the Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act 2015 which includes measures on equal pay transparency, whistle-blowing and unpaid tribunal awards and the Shared Parental Leave Regulations allowing parental leave to be shared between parents at times of their choosing. The Trade Union Bill is also considered which, when enacted, will make taking industrial action much more difficult.
