Labor and Employment Law gives paralegals and business students an excellent, general overview of all the legal issues that would likely come up in the workplace. Because there are so many statutes covering the workplace, failure to recognize violations of any one of them could result in problems for a company or a client. The text covers all the important areas of employment law. It introduces such topics as workers' compensation, workplace torts, discrimination, wage and hour issues, OSHA and other federal employment laws. Portions of the text are skillfully illustrated using charts and graphs for better comprehension and retention. Human resources students and future professionals also will find this text to be a valuable resource.
