Overview

The Fourth Edition offers a comprehensive treatment of the entire subject of personnel law that reflects the author's personal experience as both a practicing lawyer and personnel director. Written in simple language that bridges the gap between law and human relations management, the new edition explores the legal considerations that occur when an employer-employee relationship is established, and focuses on permissible activities in handling personnel problems, when to seek legal counsel, and how to stay out of court. Offers new case law where the legal principles have been changed by the courts. Covers all the new statutes. Continues to find an economical way for the Epersonnel function to live with its law partner, whose principles are laid down by legislation and interpreted by the courts. An excellent resource for those in the personnel/ human resources field.
