Reviews

'The 9th edition of Deborah Lockton's excellent text upon Employment Law has continued with the high standard of clarity, practical application, and legal insight demonstrated by her previous editions. The text contains fine descriptions of current substantive law across the full range of Employment Law matters, including relevant Trade Union Law, and combines these with pertinent practical examples of application, in a highly readable and stimulating manner. It is a superb account and a must-read for students, practitioners, and those working in the field of Human Resources.' - Alan Bensted, Emeritus Professor of Law and Emeritus Pro-Vice Chancellor, University of the West of England 'The greatest strength of Lockton's textbook is its accessibility to students and researchers in law, as well as others working in related fields such as economics or business...A further strength of Lockton's work is the provision of exercises to help students apply the knowledge they have learnt in hypothetical settings...Lockton's work represents an excellent effort to ease students into a subject that represents an intersection of public law, private law and the social sciences.' - Undergraduate labour law student, University of Cambridge, UK
