Why choose The Good Employment Handbook?

Employment law guidance is plentiful – especially online or via telephone advice lines, but not all of that guidance is provided by staff with extensive experience or legal qualifications.  Our handbook, which we believe far outstrips its rivals in terms of detail, expertise and ease of use, is written by employment lawyers following extensive research.

The question and answer format mentioned above makes the document tremendously accessible, and you can rely upon the guidance given, which is almost always supported by case law and practical examples.

Don’t settle for packages offering only specimen letters and documents.  This is a complex area and you need an in depth and comprehensive guide.
