«I have recommended this textbook as essential reading on CIPD courses, particularly as a key text for Level 5 and as a thorough introduction to employment law at Level 7. Learners appreciate the book's practical focus and study skills chapter for writing assessments. The sixth edition has been fully revised, addressing key contemporary developments including Brexit and furlough. Accessible and clearly written with the latest case law, this excellent, 'go-to' textbook is ideal for independent learners and learners studying online or in the classroom.»

Helen Bessant, CIPD Chief Moderator and Online Tutor for ICS Learn

«Kathy Daniel's 'Introduction to Employment Law' is THE textbook for undergraduate and postgraduate students of employment law and HR/management professionals alike. Now in its 6th Edition, with her combined academic and professional background, Kathy brings an informed, contemporary and applied approach to this often complex but important area of the law and HR practice.»

Carole Parkes, Emeritus Professor of Responsible Management & Leadership, University of Winchester

«A great introduction to what is arguably the most important aspect of people management, given we can neither manage people fairly nor well if we can't as a minimum do it lawfully. A clear, easy-to-read book which is a veritable page-turner in this genre! Highly recommended not just for HR students but for anyone managing people in the UK.»

Keith F Watson, LL.M, Chartered FCIPD FCMI FLPI, FITOL Director 360 HR Solutions and Tutor on CIPD Q
