The Law of Termination of Employment

Eighth Edition

By Stephen Hardy, Robert Upex

This well-established and authoritative analysis of the UK's rules governing termination of employment provides coverage of the statutory and common law rights, as well as procedural considerations. It also deals with problems beyond termination, such as competition from ex-employees. Worked calculations of compensation in unfair dismissal cases illustrate how the law operates in practice. This eighth edition has been thoroughly updated to take account of major developments in law and practice in the UK, including: the demise of the statutory grievance and disciplinary procedures and their replacement with the ACAS Code * the introduction of Agency Workers Regulations * the new costs regime and relevant UK case law * future developments, such as the government's consultation on raising/reviving continuity two years qualifying period and Tribunal reform. Throughout the book, recent case law is analyzed, including the definition of employee and dismissal, constructive dismissal, and fairness of the dismissal.
