Employment Security


Focusing on one major and controversial aspect of industrial law - the role of law in providing security of employment - this book concentrates on issues of individual employment rights and notions of justice and fairness in employment.

Distinguished authors analyse the changes made by the Industrial Relations (Reform) Act 1993 within the context of the totality of the subject on which they write.
