Review(s) from previous edition"The seventh edition of John Bowers' A Practical Approach to Employment Law is a comprehensive, almost encyclopaedic review of employment law, but in a remarkably slim tome given the ground it covers...A large amount of serious law is presented in a lucid, easy to read style... The book provides an invaluable reference point for expert practitioners seeking to home in on specific questions. - Ellen Temperton (Baker & McKenzie), New Law Journal.
"The author is a barrister of considerable repute with extensive experience of both advising on employment law issues and advocacy in various forms. It provides a clear guide to all aspects of individual and collective employment law in practice today...This book is a comprehensive review of employment law and contains various illustrations of unreported decisions which the author is able to bring to the reader's attention as a result of his time spent in various tribunals." - Michael Grisenthwaite (Fidelity International, London), International Company and Commercial Law Review.
