The whole process of making a claim is explained clearly, with good case examples and is really easy to understand. For dry material, the authors manage to make it interesting, which is quite something. I read it outside of work hours – that’s a first! Do not attempt to make a employment claim on your own without this book!

I’ve recently claimed, and won, age discrimination, in relation to not being selected for voluntary early retirement. I can honestly say that I would not have been able to do it without your advice – especially around the terminology and processes to look out for… I just wanted you to know what a relief it was to find information presented in such a simple way.

New Law Journal, July 2005
Naomi Cunningham’s book… is a rare gem; it is the ‘flesh that clothes the bones’ of the employment tribunal system…
Although the book is primarily written for the employee adviser, those acting for employers, including the experienced practitioner, will be able to borrow some tactical gems from Ms Cunningham’s treasure chest…

Your book was of enormous help to me in winning my recent case against my employer whilst representing myself. Thank you so much for making your information available to us as the public… It gave me personally such confidence and understanding of how to set out and prepare. You would have been proud of me!
This book is the nearest substitute a Claimant’s representative will find to asking a more experienced colleague for advice.
I would have given my eye teeth for this book as a newly qualified employment lawyer.
CAB Update, June 2005
This is an excellent, practical book for people dealing with cases in employment tribunals.

Ms Cunningham knows just what the busy adviser needs to know to get the most out of case preparation. A particular strength is the focus on working precedents and annotated letters and lists included throughout the text. The advice is clear, practical and user friendly and very good value for money.
It will be an invaluable tool to law centres, advisors, trade union representatives, as well as being a real help to the unrepresented litigant. This is also an excellent read for lawyers who represent claimants or practitioners who need to brush up their skills. There are few books which take such a practical approach to a legal area, and the precedents and letters alone must earn this book a place on any employment advisor’s bookshelf.
Adviser, July 2005
Naomi Cunningham is able to give wonderful reassurance that whatever the situation, it has happened to someone before and that there is a way to move forward with honour intact.
The book is set out in a particularly useful manner: each stage of a claim, from the grievance procedure right through to appealing against a tribunal decision, is given its own chapter and set of precedents.
Although this book is directed at the adviser who is unfamiliar with tribunal practice, it covers so many interesting and topical areas (including the intricacies of the Dispute Resolution Regulations), that it is a really useful tool for anyone; truly a book you will not want your colleagues to borrow.
Employment Lawyers Association Briefing, June 2005
I have no hesitation in recommending this book to the audience for which it was written. While the benefit to the well seasoned employment practitioner may be limited to its use as a quick and easy reference point during busy periods, the benefit of this text for the less experienced is likely to be much more substantial. For the junior practitioner and those who do not regularly practise employment law, the precedents and practical examples contained in this book are likely to provide a useful aid to navigating through the sometimes daunting world of tribunal practice, for claimants and respondents alike.
