The 2013 edition of Law at Work marks 25 years of the Labour Research Department’s publication of its comprehensive employment law guide. It has been thoroughly revised and updated to provide the basic information that will help establish your rights in the workplace and decide whether there is a legal claim to be made. Law at Work 2013 clearly explains the key areas of employment law so that reps and individuals can identify their legal rights, and unlike most other publications on employment law, it examines the law from the perspective of trade unions and workers.
The popular LRD Booklets provide invaluable information on a range of trade union and labour movement concerns. An average of 10 or 11 booklets are produced each year. There are guides to issues that are permanently on the trade union agenda - such as health and safety, state benefits and sick pay - as well as rapid analysis of new developments affecting trade unionists - such as new employment laws and codes.
