Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This work of popular legal reference is similar in approach to Dan Lacey's Your Rights in the Workplace ( LJ 2/15/92). Like Lacey, labor lawyer Joel presents an employee's legal rights from the initial mating dance of the job interview to, as increasingly occurs, a messy divorce at termination. Joel sees a worker's best defense as a good offense: he suggests we each start compiling a "personal personnel file" from the moment we spot a seductive want ad, maintaining this paper trail to counter our bosses' documentation should the need arise. In a downright chatty style, Joel discusses over 100 strictures governing hours, wages, working conditions, discrimination, and related issues. He provides fuller coverage than Lacey of the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act. Joel also untangles the labyrinth of workers'-compensation rules, and aging baby boomers will appreciate his coverage of the age-discrimation law that protects the "Over Forties." A robust glossary, summaries of key legislation, and examples of real-life employment conflicts conclude the book. Recommended to libraries serving the legal research needs of the public.

Format: Paperback
This book takes you through the whole process of the interview right through making the decision as to whether your rights have been violated and what to do if they have been. This is a very easy to read book done in a very thoughtful way exploring whether contesting an employers action is a smart decision to suing the hell out of them for a blatent violation of the law. Ill never go unprepared again.

I purchased an older edition of this book back in the early 90's and it has been my "bible" on the job ever since! This book is in a straightforward, easy to understand format and contains invaluable information for anyone who works.

Excellent, informative and enjoyable read. This book is extremely well-written. It offers a wide spectrum of Employment Law. I usually keep books like this on hand to skim through, as reference material. However, this book was such an enjoyable read, I didn't want to put it down!
Many thanks to the author.

Excellent book. Very good and useful information. Perfect for a Facilities/Construction law class I am taking for undergrad degree. Last revision was 2001 I believe so it may not be 100% accurate but very good information nonetheless.

I can't say what the latest and greatest laws are for employees and whether you'll WIN your case. But I can say that just reading this book and understanding the players, process and theories is INVALUABLE.

The book does a wonderful job of explaining the thought behind laws related to common employee issues and how to be prepared to defend yourself, do more research and of course, prepare to hire a lawyer in an INFORMED way.

Would recommend this book to anyone, however, it's likely most effective for folks, that work for corporations or companies with at the very least 150-200 employees. Perhaps a little less, but generally, smaller companies often do as they wish...

Every Employee's Guide To The Law

This book is a great resource on employment law. It talks about employment discrimination, unions, wage disputes, worker safety, and litigation. It arms the reader with valuable knowledge on how to deal with unethical employers and workplace discrimination. It talks about the many lawsuits that have been successfully litigated against companies and educates the reader on how to affirm their rights under the law. Other topics include interviewing, sexual harassment, workplace privacy, benefits, worker's compensations, and human resources. Most companies and their managers are only looking out for their own interests, so the employee needs to be educated about workplace issues. I highly recommend this useful and educational book.
