Description

This text integrates psychological theory with tools and methods for the workplace. It presents a model of scientific procedure and fundamental theory that will help students develop a solid foundation of related knowledge. This fourth edition adds practical examples of company human resource management to each chapter, examines the provisions and implications of two new employment laws, the Immigration and Reform and Control Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act. It also updates information on the political and interpersonal issues in performance appraisal and presents the practical implications of the latest legal and scientific developments in the use of drug screening. The book also discusses rulings and implications of recent civil rights cases decided by the Supreme Court, in the areas of affirmative action, preferential selection, seniority and performance appraisal, and explores areas such as the impact of computers on recruitment. There is also coverage of ethical issues in human resource management - computer monitoring of employees, and employee privacy.show more
