`Review from previous edition Containing statutes and key materials along with a concise commentary on procedure and substantive law, this invaluable book has everything you need to advise clients and appear before tribunals with confidence. Why use multiple books when this one is the only one you need? ' Jody Atkinson, Barrister, St Johns' Chambers

`'Blackstone's Employment Law Practice provides an excellent guide to the increasingly complex world of practice and procedure in employment law, both in tribunals and the civil courts. The appendices are particularly useful. No employment lawyer should be without it.' ' Barry J. Clarke, Partner, Russell Jones and Walker, Cardiff and national chairman of the Employment Lawyers' Association

`'Practitioners have been waiting for a one-volume compendium like this for years. It is often the only book you need to take to the tribunal...Every authoritative statement you need at your fingertips.' ' Jeremy Nixon, BirdandBird, the New Law Journal

`'This is a new and innovative volume that deserves a place in the employment law library ' ' Philip Wood, Dawsons, the ELA Briefing

`'It is extremely valuable to have all the key areas of procedure and practice summarised into a single volume. I found the sections on tribunal practice to be the most valuable, set out in a clearly accessible manner with helpful explanations of difficult points. The legislation is well selected, and the summaries of the substantive law proved to be useful reminders of the key issues. And all this for a price far more reasonable than one might imagine for a work of this quality. ' ' Geoffrey Mead, Partner, Collyer Bristow

`'This book is very useful for union lawyers, officers and representatives dealing with employment law casework, as it combines substantive law with clear explanations of procedural rules in one volume.' ' Lucy Anderson, Senior Policy Office (Solicitor), TUC

`'The volume is a very useful, reliable and portable work of reference both for busy practitioners and those who may not appear in employment tribunals regularly' ' Janet Gaymer CBE, Senior Partner, Simmons and Simmons
