About The Book
The Employment Law Handbook is written to fill a gap identified in the nature of texts on Employment and Labour Law in Nigeria. While there are many well-researched books on the general principles of Labour and Employment Law, there is a dearth of quick reference materials for Human Resource Managers and Legal Practitioners who have to grapple with taking decisions and advising on workplace related issues on a daily basis. This need is accentuated by the rapid changes in this area of the Law in recent years.
This book provides answers to most of the frequently asked questions on Employment and Labour Law, contains a synopsis of all Employment and Labour Law related legislations as well as selection of precedents.
