Book Of The Week:  The Employment Law Handbook

Book Of The Week:  The Employment Law Handbook

While there are many well-researched books on the general principles of Labour and Employment Law, there is a dearth of quick reference materials for Human Resource Managers and Legal Practitioners who have to grapple with taking decisions and advising on workplace related issues on a daily basis.
The Employment Law Handbook is written to fill a gap identified in the nature of texts on Employment and Labour Law in Nigeria.
This book provides answers to most of the frequently asked questions on Employment and Labour Law, contains a synopsis of all Employment and Labour Law related legislations as well as selection of precedents.
In the words of a former Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Bayo Ojo, SAN, ‘This insightful book coming from someone who demonstrates a commendable solid knowledge of the subject, is lucidly written, free of the usual technical jargons and presented in an easy to read language. It is a great, lively, vigorous, engaging and stimulating book, that is recommended for reading by all class of people including experts, and the general public who seeks a handy reference material and a rudimentary understanding of the elementary of labour laws’.
The Author, Jamiu Akolade is currently a Legal Counsel within the Global Litigation team of the Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC). Before joining SPDC, he was a dispute resolution Counsel in Adepetun Caxton-Martins Agbor & Segun, a top-tier commercial law firm where he was part of the employment litigation team.

In his years of practice, Jamiu has advised extensively on employee wrongful termination claims, redundancies, executive compensation,
compensation for workplace injuries and has also represented high net worth clients in State and Federal Courts.
