The advantage of ordering directly from LAG is that you’ll probably get the book before Christmas. Orders from Amazon will have to go from LAG, to Amazon, then on to you, and probably won’t reach you until January.
If you want to read some reviews of the first and second editions, you can find them here.
We’re not actually recommending it as a Christmas present, though.
Our publisher has told us that they have run out of copies of Employment Tribunal Claims: Tactics and Precedents, the book that this site was created to accompany.
In one sense this is great news. It means that we’ve sold 1,800 copies since September 2007 – which would be disappointing for the latest adventures of a certain adolescent wizard, but is pretty decent for a law book. At the same time, it means people may be finding it hard to find a copy, which we like to think is a bad thing.
The book’s being reprinted, so this is a temporary problem. In the short term, copies are still available from amazon.co.uk.
If you follow that link (or the one at the side of the page) a small affilliate fee (about 5%) will be paid the Free Representation Unit, in addition to the royalties, which always benefit FRU.
If you have a copy, but have finished your tribunal, consider passing it on to someone who might find it useful.
ETA: The reprint has now been done, so you should have no trouble finding a copy from any normal source.
We note with amusement that at least one organisation has added this site to their list of prohibited websites. In other words, somebody feels that they’d rather not have their employees reading our posts. This makes us feel gratifyingly dangerous and edgy.
Joking aside, this probably isn’t a great idea. If you’re an employer, barring access to this blog is unlikely to be an effective way of preventing your employees from finding out that they can sue you. If it has any effect at all, it’s more likely just to piss them off. They’re probably already quite pissed off if they are looking for information on this subject, so the chances are you’ve just made it more likely – not less – that they will sue you.
Moreover, if you’re going to be sued, it will be less annoying on balance for you – and quite often less expensive – to be sued by someone who knows what they’re doing than by someone who hasn’t a clue. So a better plan would be to buy your employees a copy of our book.
