This module will introduce you to the legal regulation of working relationships. We will focus particularly upon the creation, regulation and termination of the employment relationship, the rights and responsibilities of employers and employees and the role of modern trade unions. We will consider these issues in their wider political, historical, and socio-economic context. You will also get the opportunity to present your own arguments for law reform in an assessed presentation.
It is a pre-requisite to have a working knowledge of the law of contract, normally through having taken the Level 1 Law of Contract module, or equivalent.
