This text addresses human resource practices associated with each stage of the employment process—from hiring, to managing, to firing—and emphasizes the application of legal concepts to future business situations. Various features throughout the text offer students opportunities to develop issue spotting, critical thinking, and legal reasoning skills that will be integral in their future careers as human resource managers. EMPLOYMENT LAW FOR HUMAN RESOURCE PRACTICE, 4TH EDITION empowers students to understand the difference between what is legal and what is not, see and avoid potential problems, and know when to turn to a lawyer. While continuing its coverage of all the most important employment law topics, this edition has been updated to include extended coverage of a number of areas reflecting recent legislation, the issuance of new regulations, and recent case law. Some of these topics include: class action lawsuits, use of independent contractors, human trafficking, and the use of credit histories and criminal backgrounds when hiring.
"The employee life cycle approach to this text offers students the ability to understand the employment process, from beginning to end, while considering the legal environment and its implications for business success. Walsh's personnel law book provides a solid foundation for students to successfully navigate the always changing and rarely certain areas of personnel law within an organization."
"Of all of the texts that I reviewed, this one has the most practical and usable advise for soon-be-HR practioners. The life cycle approach is strong and the writing easy to read."
"My students love the book and HR majors hold on to it as a reference."
"I use the chapter questions a great deal for class discussions. I love using them by section to spice up conversation and see if the students can apply what they've learned. I think these are one of the single most valuable elements of your book!"
"I recently graduated from Central Ohio Technical College as a Business/HR major. One of my classes…used your textbook called "Employment Law for Human Resources Practice" I just wanted to say that I enjoyed the textbook and found it very informative and humorous in some cases. Thank you for writing such a good HR reference textbook."
