Children are in need of support not due to any fault on their part but due to their circumstances.

Uniquely focused on the often-neglected Part 3 of the Children Act 1989, Children in Need combines authoritative guidance on the law with practical advice from a team who routinely act for children and their families in the court. Children in Need is up to date to include: * detailed coverage of the new guidance, Working together to safeguard children (2013) and its impact * analysis of recent key cases, including R(KO) v Lambeth LBC and R(VC) v Newcastle City Council * Case-law developments in respect of duties to migrant children and their families, following the judgment in Clue * details of the new National Standards for Youth Justice Services (2013) Children in Need is essential reading for claimant lawyers, advocates, voluntary and statutory sector advisers, local authority lawyers and frontline staff, social workers and academics. It is intended to assist all those who work with and for children 'in need' and their families to understand and apply the law to the benefit of vulnerable children.

Essential social security law, examines the law that seeks to alleviate the economic and social consequences suffered by people in the event of a complete or partial loss of income. It focuses on those contingencies that have a direct impact on a person's earning capacity, such as old age, injuries, unemployment, sickness and pregnancy. It also deals with the death of a breadwinner, medical incapacity, the inability to maintain children, personal and community crises, hardship caused by the state and the lack of opportunities for disadvantaged members of society. In the process of examining these contingencies, the title deals with legislation such as the Social Assistance Act, Pension Funds Act, Compensation for occupational injuries and diseases Act, Unemployment Insurance Act, Basic Conditions of Employment Act and Medical Schemes Act. The k includes recent judgments dealing with various aspects of social security and cross-references the important and comprehensive report on social security compiled by the Taylor Committee. It also contains an additional chapter on the concept of informal social security in South Africa (such as stokvels). The title also sheds light on a number of issues that have a bearing on social security, for instance, financing and administration, unfair discrimination in social security legislation and the social security rights of migrant workers.

Housing Conditions: tenants' rights is the definitive legal guide to bad housing conditions in rented accommodation in England. It covers the private rented sector, council housing and homes let by housing associations or other social landlords. Previously titled Repairs: tenants' rights, it has long been recognised as the essential text for all housing advisers and lawyers dealing with disrepair and other adverse conditions affecting residents in rented housing accommodation. The Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act 2018, coming into force in March 2019, is the biggest advance in tenants' rights relating to housing conditions for a generation. Initially, it will require all new lettings to be of homes fit for habitation and that they be kept fit. It will further come to apply to virtually all residential tenancies whenever granted. This new edition takes a broader approach to housing conditions in the light of the new Act and this is reflected in the new title and also a significant revision and restructuring of the content. The text of the book is now concerned more generally with problems arising from the poor condition of much rented housing. It deals with fitness for human habitation and with health and safety issues going well beyond the traditional concern of lawyers and other advisers with the topic of repair/disrepair (while also dealing with those issues). Housing Conditions: tenants' rights outlines what tenants can do to obtain better conditions themselves, but also what local councils, responsible for housing conditions in their areas, can do to help them achieve improved conditions. Contents include: *landlords' obligations *enforcing rights *private tenants: involving the local council *funding *proceedings under the Environmental Protection Act 1990 *criminal proceedings and rogue landlords *infestations, hazards and absence of amenities *compensation *Practical step-by-step guidance on how to bring a disrepair claim *Extensive set of precedents with worked examples used at all stages of the court process, extracts from legislation and helpful guidance on technical information Housing Conditions: tenants' rights is about bad housing conditions in rented accommodation in England. It is primarily written for the assistance of the occupiers of that housing and their advisers, but it will also be useful to landlords, providers of accommodation and to those who advise them. Written and structured in an accessible and practical way, it is an indispensable resource for both non-lawyers and busy practitioners.

Social Security Outside the Realm of the Employment Contract - Informal Work and Employee-Like Workers (Hardcover): Mies... Social Security Outside the Realm of the Employment Contract - Informal Work and Employee-Like Workers (Hardcover)

Over recent years, the inability of social security protection to reach workers without a formal employment contract has become an inconvenient reality in both the global north and south. This book explores how provisions for income security can be revised to effectively meet the needs of the labour force in varying economies. In developing economies, informal employment has traditionally accounted for a high proportion of overall employment and this trend looks set to continue. In the global north, the increasing use of flex-contracts and `dependent self-employment' has led to a rise in the number of workers with limited income protection. An additional challenge for countries in both hemispheres is the rise of the `gig' economy. This book is the first to open up a dialogue about social security coverage in the developed and developing world. Authors from both sides of the divide have contributed chapters and present a variety of insights, experiments and practices with the aim of identifying better ways to combat the growing social security challenge. Academic researchers with an interest in labour law and social policy will find this book to be an engaging source of innovative research. Practicing lawyers and policy makers will also benefit from the insights and examples provided from a number of different jurisdictions.

Juridification refers to a diverse set of processes involving shifts towards more detailed legal regulation, regulations of new areas, and conflicts and problems increasingly being framed in legal and rights-oriented terms. What impact do these international and national regulations have upon vulnerable groups in terms of inclusion, exclusion and social citizenship? The nature and effects of current juridification processes are hotly debated amongst social scientists and legal scholars. Bringing empirical analysis and multidisciplinary, comparative perspectives to the previously fragmented and largely theoretical debate on juridification in the welfare state, this book asks key questions such as: To what extent do international human rights norms secure basic welfare services to vulnerable groups?; How do different regulations affect democratic participation?; What is the role of professionals in the distribution of welfare services? Researchers, students and academics with an interest in law, human rights, social policy and the role of professionals in the welfare state will find much of value in this book.

Congressional interest in the laws and processes involved in conditioning U.S. assistance to foreign security forces on human rights grounds has grown in recent years, especially as U.S. Administrations have increased emphasis on expanding U.S. partnerships and building partnership capacity with foreign military and other security forces. Congress has played an especially prominent role in initiating, amending, supporting with resources, and overseeing implementation of long-standing laws on human rights provisions affecting U.S. security assistance. This book provides background on the Leahy laws, including a brief history of their legislative development; an overview guide to the standards and processes used to "vet"that is, review and clearforeign military and other security forces for gross violations of human rights; and a brief review of salient issues regarding the provisions of the laws and their implementation. It also examines the extent to which State and DOD provide guidance to their personnel to address the Leahy laws; how the State monitors whether U.S. embassies have developed procedures to address the requirements of the Leahy laws; how the state provides training to personnel who conduct human rights vetting; assesses the extent to which DOD and State safeguard U.S. military technologies sold or exported to the Gulf countries; provide similar or differing levels of protection for the same military technologies; and vet recipients of U.S.-funded military training and equipment for potential human rights violations.
