I recommended this for our CIPD students as a slightly wider introduction to employment law than the current Level 3 course provides and will recommend for Level 5 when they start.

A good book that covers all that business and CIPD students(employment law module) will need to know about employment law. The interactive sections at the end of section are useful for revision of learning.
