Employment Rights is the most thorough and comprehensive work available on the issues that may arise between employers and employees during the employment relationship. Covering every phase from recruitment through promotions to retirement, this book deals extensively with the contract of employment, and the various statutes which have drastically altered the common law of employment – in particular the Basic Conditions of Employment Act 75 of 1997, Labour Relations Act 66 of 1995 and the Employment Equity Act 55 of 1998. The book provides detailed discussion of unfair labour practices, the law of unfair discrimination and affirmative action. Written in the clear and readable style, the exposition of each topic is illustrated with examples drawn from the case law. This current edition adds many judgments handed down since the previous edition was published, and incorporates the far-reaching amendments to labour legislation.

Employment Rights forms part of a 4-volume series, and can where necessary be read with its companion volumes – Dismissal, Collective Labour Law and Labour Litigation and Dispute Resolution.
