Format: Printed Access Code
A number of reviews of this book are unfairly critical. Reviewers who criticize it on the basis of being too "liberal" or "anti-management" seem to be missing an obvious point. Regulating the employment environment is an inherently liberal idea, designed to protect "common" workers at the expense of the organization and its representatives. Whether you like this system or not is irrelevant; this is the way that employment law in the US currently exists, and the book describes it accurately without any more "bias" than any other book on the topic.

As for the flow and writing, the authors do throw a lot of terminology at the reader in the first few chapters, but this is unavoidable when trying to translate an advanced legal topic for an audience without any legal training. Despite this challenge, the writing and explanations are very clear, and many difficult concepts are illustrated with EXCELLENT case studies and snippets from opinions. I find that students sometimes have trouble with the layout of the book because it is not organized by laws and statutes, but rather by legal concepts and case types that sometimes cut across multiple laws and statutes. Consequently, issues discussed several chapters back do "pop up" again seemingly out of the blue. However, this structure is actually a major strength as the reader can easily find everything about a topic (e.g., gender discrimination) in one place without having to hunt statute-by-statute through the book to find the applicable content.

In short, a great introduction for someone new to employment law, and definitely the book to use if teaching a course on this topic.

I really like the way this book is set up and is a very good reference manual for today's managers.

I liked this law book because it has shorter versons of cases for quick lookup. What I hate about this book is that it doesn't list laws like ADA, Title VII, etc. in their entirety. It speaks about parts of them, but doesn't list them for you to read yourself.

I was using the book for an Employment Law class and I found it difficult to work with - no in depth details on subject matter. Many cases and actual examples but I had to go elsewhere for the basic nuts and bolts of the subject. This book would better serve someone who is in pre-law because of the actual cases and examples. As a business management major, I don't believe it will be one I would refer back to for any reason.

When I bought the book it said it was in very good condition. In fact the book was not even in great condition or good condition. It was full of highlighted marks, the corners were torn and falling apart. I would not have bought the book had I known all of this.

The purchase experience was pretty smooth and the book was obtained at a reasonable price. The only issue I had was that the seller never responded to any of my e-mails. I did desire next day delivery but got no where with it. Other than that, it went fine.

I am very pleased with the service and product. The book arrived in a couple of days after placing order. Shopping Amazon has been the best market to shop prices and make great purchases.
