In recent years there has been a revolution in the law of the workplace. The burgeoning discipline of employment law has replaced labor law, the law of union-management relations, as the relationship with the individual employee has become the key factor. This book familiarizes the reader with the basics of US employment law. It is oriented both to students taking a course in employment law and to human resources professionals who need to deal daily with matters that have legal significance. Employment Law examines the relevant statutes, judicial decisions, executive orders, and administrative policies that shape the respective rights of managers and workers at the workplace. It goes well beyond simply stating what is legal and what is illegal. It assumes that the student and the professional needs to understand the principles underlying the law so that he or she can evaluate an organization's decisions against those principles. The authors make wide use of case material and administrative regulation, since it is the cases and regulations that ultimately identify and explain the legal principles as the major force influencing and shaping government policy.
