From the Back Cover
Employment Law examines the relevant statutes, judicial decisions, executive orders, and administrative policies that shape the respective rights of managers and workers at the workplace. It goes well beyond simply stating what is legal and what is illegal. It assumes that the student and the professional needs to understand the principles underlying the law so that he or she can evaluate an organization's decisions against those principles. The authors make wide use of case material and administrative regulation, since it is the cases and regulations that ultimately identify and explain the legal principles as the major force influencing and shaping government policy.
