In his foreword to the book, constitutional lawyer, Femi Falana, SAN, said it will enjoy pride of place on bookshelves.

He said, “Although there are many books on labour and employment law in Nigeria, none has examined the determination of contract of employment from the standpoint of international best practices as Aborisade has done.

“Comrade Femi Aborisade has, in a rigorous manner, filled the lacuna in his book.”

In another foreword, Hon Justice B. B. Kanyip( PhD), of the National Industrial Court, stated that “Femi Aborisade has comparatively considered the circumstances in which an employment contract may be determined.

“The text, therefore, is a very welcome development as it seeks to provide stakeholders in labour, practitioners, students and the general readers with a range of comparative labour jurisprudence regarding the vexed issue of the determination of employment relationships”.

The book will be reviewed by Dr. OsagieObayuwana, Former Attorney General, Edo State while TUC President, Comrade Bobboi Kaigama is the Chairman/Chief Launcher , and the Co-Launchers are, Comrade Sunday Salako, President, ASSBIFI; Comrade (Engr) Bede Opara, President, SSAEAC.
