Employment relations touch on areas that HR professionals must know throughout their careers. The book is structured perfectly by mixing ideas backed up with academic facts, and exercises that encourage the reader to critically think about current trends in employment relations and their consequences on both sides of the equation.

Bingham produces a structured text with applied learning embedded in the philosophy and the writing style of this text. Learning is facilitated through the strategic placement of short exercises/revision exercises, "News Flashes", case short studies and review questions, culminating in a "relevant Articles" aimed at independent learning. The structured interjection of these bit-sized learning activities helps to deliver what can be, to most students, a very "dry" topic of Employment Relations. The text is adopted for Undergraduate, Postgraduate, Work-based Learning programs and Apprenticeships.
