It’s true, the provisos and limitations associated with such a subject are abit irritating at times, but what can you expect? You’d get the same if youspoke directly to a lawyer, but they’d be far less likely to explain each pointas clearly and practically. The writing style allows you to dip in as you need, yet also encourages youto read a little further around your original topic. There is also a useful listing of websites that provide further, andpresumably more up-to-date, sources of information. These are a little detailedin part, and perhaps it may have been an idea to offer all of these as linksfrom one site. At around £45, it represents good value for money. No resource today couldpossibly keep up with such a rapidly changing subject without a considerablygreater outlay. Overall, it gets a clear thumbs up from me, and will certainly have a placeon my bookshelf.Buy this book at AmazonJulian Burch works mainly in the automotive sector of Maritz Learning,designing and resourcing employee development solutions. A handbook on employment law? How will that work?

That is, unlessit’s very well written, as this one is. Employment Law Handbook, 2nd editionOn 29 Jun 2004 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. Comments are closed. last_img read more
