  • A focus on the theory and practice of managing conflict with a brand new chapter on workplace mediation
  • Revised chapters on discipline, grievance and redundancy, based on the latest research, and contemporary practice
  • A more critical approach, reflecting the increasing role played by line managers in employment relations and the influence of employee representation
  • A richer exploration of the context of employment relations with new coverage of the global environment, the changing labour market and regulatory reform.
