    • a rewrite of all the precedents  
The new 4th  edition of Duggan QC on Contracts of Employment is a two volume set which covers all aspects of the employment relationship with precedents for every facet of employment. For not much more than the cost of a billable hour, the practitioner is given access to 1428  pages of practical commentary in volume 1, as well as over 250 precedents, in hard copy in volume 2 and in  digital content (which will be emailed), as well as a regular updater for the commentary and precedents.
 
Human Resource Practitioners will find the guidance in the first volume invaluable and a useful reference tool on legal process, whilst the precedents in the second volume will be of  everyday use to the busy practitioner. The updates will ensure that legal developments are assimilated into practice and the precedents are kept up to date and relevant.
