Employment law

Emplaw Online


This site is a "super portal" for employment law and is the single best starting point, aimed at practitioners, for all research on UK employment law: paid for and free resources available. A free monthly update is provided by e-mail.



A well-organised collection of its regular newsletters (“the Labour and European Law Review”) updating visitors about employment law developments; albeit primarily from the perspective of the employee and trades unions. Helpfully, the articles in the newsletters are now accessible by subject matter. To access pre May 2011 articles see: www.thompsons.law.co.uk/ltext/lelindex.htm

Equality and Human Rights Commission


The Equality and Human Rights Commission website is of obvious relevance to employment law. The advice and guidance section ( www.equalityhumanrights.com/en/advice-and-guidance) now takes the form of a series of “nested” questions delivering relevant content depending on whether you are employer or employee, and the exact nature of the circumstances arising.

Daniel Barnett

Working rights
