Editorial Reviews

New York Times
Sack looks seemingly everywhere job discrimination might lurk and where special accommodations, if any, sbould be made.
Nashville Tennessean
Sack's excellent book covers employment rights ranging from the initial interview to negotiating a termination. People who plan ahead will know how to negotiate and get more employment benefits.
Career Corner
The Employee Rights Handbook may very well be the authoritative text on the pitfalls of being an employee. Sack has managed to take all of this detailed, complicated, and relatively dry information and make it very readable and interesting. The book is well worth the money regardless of your occupation and locale.
Detroit News
Sack offers tips that all workers should use to empower themselves. If there's one message driving Sack through his work, it's know your rights.
New Woman Magazine
Simply written and easy to digest, this book may save you some serious money in determining what your rights are in the workplace. If you feel you have been discriminated against, want to know what the grounds are for an illegal firing, or are unsure of what kind of lawyer to see if you are planning to sue, you should get a copy.
Library Journal
Sack, author of 11 other legal titles (e.g., The Lifetime Legal Guide), has revised and expanded his previous, 2000 edition of The Employee Rights Handbook. Once again taking a linear path, Sack advises readers on topics from avoiding prehiring abuses and protecting on-the-job rights through postemployment litigation and finding and hiring a lawyer. His writing style is accessible, though real-life examples are insulated from reality by privacy considerations. Readers looking for a quick answer generally will be rewarded. There's an abundance of sample documents (helpfully listed in a secondary table of contents) and a glossary. The "Directory of Resources" from previous editions is absent here, probably a wise choice in a climate of high-speed change. VERDICT Readers looking for an all-in-one employee legal primer or layperson's quick reference should find this a useful tool.—Brian Walton, Tampa-Hillsborough Cty. P.L., FL
