Leading employment law experts, Ian Neil SC and David Chin of the NSW Bar offer an elegant and substantial Australian text dealing with the modern contract of employment. Set to become the authoritative Australian reference to the contract of employment, it draws on jurisprudential developments in the United Kingdom and the United States over the last 25 years. Written by practitioners for practitioners, it sets out what the Australian law is and where to find it.

The authors’ sharp, clear and incisive analysis will be valued, made accessible for barristers, solicitors, academics and students by a succinct and expository style. Focusing specifically on the law of employment contracts, it offers in-depth analysis of the modern common law of the contract of employment, written in a succinct way that aims to provide answers, not more questions. Specific chapters on difficult areas such as the Fiduciary Obligation of Loyalty, and Mutual Trust and Confidence are critical reading for practitioners.
