Description of Product

In this book, the author provides an in depth analysis of the Employment Act, including the recent changes that have taken place. It unearths many issues not covered elsewhere and gives particular attention to the implications of the new definition of the term "dismiss" under the Act. In addition, some avenues for reform are also addressed. Detailed commentary exposes the Act in its barest form, enabling its reader to gain an insight into the workings of each section, its relevancy and scope and it is presented in a clear and concise manner.
