It is designed to allow for those who want a comprehensive overview but also for those who wish to 'dip-in' to a specific topic. This report is designed to be accessible and is targeted at employers, HR managers, legal advisors, students of employment law, and those that need to have a practical understanding about the origins, nature and detail of employment law that originates from the EU.
