Written in simple language which bridges the gap between law and human relations management, this comprehensive study of personnel law reflects the author's personal experience both as a practising lawyer and personnel director. It explores the legal considerations of employer-employee relationships, focussing on permissable activites in handling personnel problems, when to seek legal counsel and how to stay out of court. New statutes such as CRA91 and ADA are covered.
