Outsourcing has continued to thrive in spite of the worst recession in living memory. Outsourcing suppliers stand to benefit as governments tackle the need to deliver public services while saving money, and more and more organisations look likely to become customers for outsourcing services in the relentless drive to cut costs. Outsourcing Law and Practice examines the legal rules applying to outsourcing transactions across the whole sector and at how these rules operate in practice. This invaluable new book is aimed at professionals responsible for structuring, procuring or managing outsourcing relationships. It deals with all aspects of the subject, from tendering, contractual models and managing risk, to more specialised issues such as tax, data security, employment law and social and environmental considerations.Outsourcing Law and Practice provides: * Expert analysis - each chapter focuses on a specific area and is written by a specialist in the field * Practical guidance - consideration is given throughout to the relevant law and its implications for those managing the outsourcing process * Up-to-date coverage - the book explores current issues including cloud computing, the shared services agenda, and the increasing complexity and value of cross-border outsourcing arrangements.
