Labour law in London
Labour law is another name for employment law. Labour law in London has taken shape around the common law of contracts and a number of statutory constraints in such spheres as working time, maternity, union rights and minimum pay. Specialist employment tribunals are empowered to hear almost all individual disputes and they are an integrated element in the civil court structure. Employment tribunals hear claims about matters to do with employment. These include: unfair dismissal, redundancy payments and discrimination. They also deal with a range of claims relating to wages and other payments.
