Employment Law, Second Edition, presents a dynamic survey of contemporary issues. As an introduction to employment or labor law, or as a supplement to traditional collective bargaining or employment discrimination courses, Richard Carlson offers complete coverage of basic employment law and fills in the gaps between labor and discrimination.

Engaging and timely, Employment Law, Second Edition features:

cutting-edge topics, including the rights of undocumented workers, disputes over working time and abusive pay practices, enforcement of rights to health insurance and other benefits, investigation of employee misconduct, wrongful discharge, “whistleblowers,” conflicts between the demands of work and family, covenants not to compete, and more
complete coverage of basic employment law doctrine and legislation, including the latest new employment statutes and cases
consistent emphasis on context with regard to potential employment disputes, such as the formation of the employer-employee relationship; questions of status; and employee selection, compensation, supervision, discharge; and post-employment disputes
a thought-provoking case selection that will stimulate class discussion

Updated throughout, the Second Edition offers:

• the latest developments in legal protection for undocumented workers and liabilities of their employers
new cases and laws on employee selection, including the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) and restrictions against “personality testing” of employees
developments in the law of compensation, including antitrust violations by employers, disputes over working time, and class and “collective” actions for unpaid wages
updated treatment of rules of nondiscrimination and fiduciary duty in employer-provided health, retirement and other benefit plans
• analysis of state efforts to mandate employer-provided health insurance
• coverage of new laws for the protection of employees whose family members are called to active military duty
• expanded and updated coverage of legal protections for whistleblowers and other employees acting in the public interest, including the latest draft of the proposed Restatement of Employment Law

Exploring contemporary topics in employment law, from employee status and contract formation to termination and post-termination issues, Employment Law, Second Edition focuses on the real-life context of potential employment disputes.
