Packed with the most current cases and examples available, EMPLOYMENT LAW FOR HUMAN RESOURCE PRACTICE, 5E addresses human resource practices associated with each stage of the employment process--from hiring, to managing, to firing--as it emphasizes the application of legal concepts to business situations. News clippings, hypothetical situations, and other hands-on applications throughout the text offer students opportunities to develop issue spotting, critical thinking, and legal reasoning skills that will be integral in their future careers as human resource managers. The text empowers students to understand the difference between what is legal and what is not, see and avoid potential problems, and know when to turn to a lawyer. Covering the most important employment law topics, the Fifth Edition is completely up to date with the latest legislation, new regulations, and recent case law and now includes extended coverage of the rights of vulnerable employees under the Americans with Disabilities Act, racial discrimination, the use of background checks, the Family Medical Leave Act, and more.
