    Preface

    A distinguishing feature of employment law is its vast interaction with business. Within a global economy, business and law exist side-by-side in the everyday flow of business transactions. Yet, in the field of employment law, business and law often collide, dealing with contractual issues, dismissal of poor-performing employees and/or business restructuring. Over the last three decades, as businesses have become more global, regulation of the workplace has simultaneously become more complex. The workplace is now highly regulated by statute and EU law, which provides new challenges to businesses, especially their HR team and/or line managers. This book arises from the need of many students of business and human resources for a book setting out the context, basic principles and key laws in relation to employment matters in business. To that end, this book provides business students with an introductory overview of employment law in a practical context.

    As ever the authors both wish to warmly thank their families for their support in the writing of this book. In addition, thanks are also expressed to Mark Butler for research assistance and to our publisher, especially Kiren Shoman at Sage. The normal disclaimers apply and the law is stated as at 1 March 2006.
