I am currently using this text for a course called Legal Regulation of Business at a small liberal arts college in PA. The professor is a current lawyer at a local firm. I find that this text is useful when explaining cases, but lacks conceptual depth. Other than the cases, the rest of the book has newspaper articles, interviews, and narratives that talk about the work environment, but do not contribute to legal concepts. While it may have true statements and relevant ideas, this pop-culture aspect does not help if you are trying to learn the law. (An example would be an opening piece about why people want to work in certain places. The reason why people work is not important to defining legal workplace issues.) I find the instruction in class more useful, as the professor (as a lawyer) can often make up better examples than what the book gives. What is useful as well are the questions at the end of each case. Some are based on other cases, some are just to make you think about different circumstances. These are great for making you think on your feet and apply what you just learned about the case. My best suggestion is to use this book as a supplement for case examples, but not to rely on it completely, especially if you have never had any type of legal-ese exposure before. As it is part of my major, I am familiar with a lot of the terminology; the book often does not define terms, so I suggest having a law dictionary on hand. Overall, it is a good text, even though it is slightly out of date. For more up-to-date cases and corrections, be sure to buy the 2008 Supplement as well.

I purchased this book to give myself a refresher while preparing for the SPHR exam. I like the case reviews because it gives real-life examples of how to apply the material in the book.

This is an excellent book on employment law. This volume provides excellent information and insight into the field. I keep a copy of this book in my office and often refer to it.
