Overview

During the past decade, American businesses have shifted their focus in human resource management and labor relations to employment issues such as wrongful discharge, sexual discrimination, and other employee rights. This employment law emphasis is reflected in the new title of Cihon and Castagnera: EMPLOYMENT AND LABOR LAW, 3e.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This text provides an introduction to US employment and labor law for students of business, human resources, and industrial relations. Throughout the text, legal cases are used to illustrate principles relating to equal employment opportunity, employment law, and labor relations law. A sampling of topics includes commonly committed workplace torts; wrongful discharge; discrimination based on race, religion, age, and disability; occupational safety and health; the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA); the National Labor Relations Board; collective bargaining; and the rights of union members. The volume does not contain bibliographical references. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From the Publisher
"I have practiced labor and employment law for over twenty years and I think this is the best text for a basic labor and employment law class… It's simple to read and straightforward. I tell my students to keep the book and not sell it because it is quite helpful for the basic questions they will be asked in the work world."

"The text is well laid-out, and is written in language that is appropriate for the students; there is no reason for the students to not read the text. The questions that follow the edited cases help to focus the student's analysis of the case in question, its relevance to the topic, and introduce the student to legal concepts and outcomes they tend to neglect or may not fully understand..."

"Excellent balance of in-depth case-law readings, related ethical considerations, Internet resources, and foundational materials for the non-lawyer audience."
