Abstract

Employment Law and Theory – A Malaysian Focus with a Comparative Perspective is a publication which provides the reader with an overview and general background of employment law in Malaysia. It provides a concise but sophisticated explanation of the major principles influencing employment law and invites the reader to partake in debate and reconsideration of evolving legal principles and concepts. The methodology employed involves the conceptualization of the employment relationship and an analysis of the rights, duties and obligations of the parties within it. Comparisons are made with other common law jurisdictions to aid discussion.
