Overview

This text 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.
