9780073524962: Employment Law for Business

Bennett-Alexander and Hartman's Employment Law for Business, 7/e addresses law and employment decisions from a managerial perspective. It is intended to instruct students on how to manage effectively and efficiently with full comprehension of the legal ramifications of their decisions.

Students are shown how to analyze employment law facts using concrete examples of management-related legal dilemmas that do not present clear-cut solutions. The methods of arriving at resolutions are emphasized, so that when the facts of the workplace problem are not quite the same, the student can still reach a good decision based on the legal considerations required by law, which remain relevant.

From the Publisher:

Hot topics like race and gender discrimination in the workplace, disability issues, and sexual harassment claims have been incorporated into the 4th edition where appropriate.
The new edition has been updated to reflect the impact of current events, such as 9/11 and discrimination, on employment law and the issues surrounding it.
The 4th edition of Employment Law for Business now includes a guide to understanding the cases.
The end of chapter questions in the 4th edition will include more case-based questions allowing the student to tie chapter and case concepts together.
Case-end questions are designed as critical-thinking questions to get the student to go beyond the legal concepts and think critically about management issues from an employer's standpoint. The authors feel addressing the issues in the way they are likely to arise in life greatly enhances a students learning ability and likelihood of recognition and understanding of these situations when they arise in the workplace.
Inclusion of boxed items from everyday sources such as People and USA Today shows students how text material relates to real management situations in the workforce.
Background information is provided on relevant social or political movements so students know the history behind the laws in place.
Web URLs are provided on the text's website for students to do further research on the topics discussed in the chapters.
