Written by leading academic labour lawyers, The Law of Work, now in its second edition, presents a principled approach to its subject matter and offers a re-evaluation of the nature, scope, and importance of employment and labour law. It continues to be the most insightful, critical and up-to-date text in this area.

The book reflects the authors' conviction that social and economic context is of critical importance to an understanding of the law. Its major themes of contract and co-operation, work and social citizenship, and freedom of association provide the basis for the analysis and critique of the most significant tribunal decisions, cases, and legislative provisions.


This book is super super helpful!


I used this product for one of my law courses at uni, I could not have completed the course without it. It was super easy to read and so informative! It also has thick pages for those (like myself) who like to underline and highlight.
