    Contemporary Employment Relations: A Critical Introduction offers an original, accessible, and critical approach to understanding employment relations. Based on up-to-date research studies, it considers recent developments in employment relations, defined as the way in which employment relationships are regulated, experienced, and contested. A thematic approach to the subject helps to demonstrate the contemporary relevance of employment relations, enabling students to develop an appropriate level of knowledge and understanding of this key area of economic, social, and political life. The book is packed with up-to-date case studies to show how theory applies to real-life examples, from Royal Mail to McDonalds, Kettle Chips and Ryanair.
