Handling employment law issues has always been an important part of running any construction project. As employee rights are extended and as regulation increases, the significance of these issues for the construction industry is growing continually. With skills shortages a major issue in the industry, the profile of HR management has grown within construction companies over recent years.By using clear and concise language, glossaries of terms, explanatory charts and diagrams and additional specialist reference sources, "Employment Law for the Construction Industry" is the first book to consider employment law specifically as it relates to the construction industry in Britain.Issues covered include the structure of the employment relationship, with particular reference to sub-contractors and part-timers, the industry's tax deduction scheme for subcontractors, collective bargaining arrangements, working time, time off and holidays, employers' liabilities, training and the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 - TUPE - as they apply to contracting. The construction industry is a major employer and generates issues which are specific to the industry.
"Employment Law for the Construction Industry" has been written as a guide for those working in the industry, who have to deal day-to-day with these issues and who need to be able to access quick, easy and practical advice. This second edition is fully revised and deals in particular with changing attitudes to status, the revised tax scheme, the revisions to TUPE and important developments in the fields of discrimination and immigration.
