Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
America's disgruntled employees increasingly dispute their bosses' personnel decisions. And they no longer just grouse, grieve, or quit: they sue. In 1988, courts awarded workers over $70 million in wrongful-discharge and breach-of-con tract suits against U.S. business. Weiss has written a manager's guide through the thicket of law and regulation dealing with recruitment, interviews, sexual discrimi nation and harassment, performance re views, discipline, privacy, and termination. In everyday English, Weiss reviews the law (including the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and recent enactments protecting people with AIDS), defines key legal terms, and suggests ways managers can handle personnel actions that might otherwise get them in trouble. Weiss accompanies each topic with relevant cases and provides an appropriate amount of legal citation. Recommended for collections in employment law and labor relations.-- Michael Stevenson, Harvard Business Sch. Lib.
