Summary note
Employment Law: A Very Short Introduction provides an overview of the main kinds of employment rights and labour laws around the world. Work takes up a vast proportion of many people’s time. Although the phrase ‘work‒life balance’ is now commonplace, people work longer hours than ever. The workplace can also be somewhere to develop skills and build friendships. Issues such as equal pay and inclusion have come to the fore, and there is a growing appetite for knowledge of workplace rights and the law governing the employment relationship. This VSI evaluates the assumptions underpinning these and considers their economic, political, sociological, and social justifications.
