Description

The Labor and Employment Law text is designed to present a comprehensive and concise survey of the law affecting the workplace. This text is intended to provide a broad overview of the area for paralegals, managers and human resources professionals. The text provides an outline of state law regarding the employment relationship itself, employment contracts, employment related tort law and workers' compensation. Most of the significant employment legislation of the 20th century has been enacted at the federal level. Because this law evolved relatively recently as a result of a variety of crises, the historical background is provided to enhance understanding of these statutes. The chapters discussing the various federal laws provide detailed analysis of the statutes along with the most important Supreme Court cases interpreting these laws. The text itself includes a variety of study aids, including charts, tables, and forms as well as study questions and highlighted key words.show more
