individual employment law


Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

Is the law governing the relationship between individual workers and their employers. In the UK, it is composed of two main elements: the common law of contract and statutory employment rights. The latter have expanded greatly in number since the mid-1960s, in part as a consequence of the UK's membership of the European Union. Both statutory rights and common law entitlements can be enforced by workers at Employment Tribunals. [See collective employment law, contract of employment, employment law, legal regulation, and voluntarism.]
