Review quote

'This book sets out to provide a guide to rights at work. It does so in lucid style, whilst, at the same time, seeking to place the law in its political and historical context... a useful one for the trade unionist.' Labour Research; 'Most useful for law students, trade unionists and non-specialists, and a good start for any lawyer changing specialisms or wanting a clear picture of the current state of play and how we got there.' Law Society Gazetteshow more
