The 1998 Employment Rights (Dispute Resolution) Act and the 2002 Employment Act seek to change the existing face of UK employment law dispute resolution. Conciliation via in-house disciplinary and appeal procedures must now be followed before resorting to a tribunal hearing. Alternatively,in dismissal cases, employers and employees can both agree to go to arbitration. This book will assist the parties involved to equip themselves with knowledge of these new procedures and processes. It provides an exposition of the background, the laws, the procedures and ADR practice and is specifically designed for all practitioners concerned with employment law litigation.Hardy, Stephen is the author of 'ADR in Employment Law' with ISBN 9781859417782 and ISBN 1859417787.
