9780138455613: Stay Out of Court: The Manager's Guide to Preventing Employee Lawsuits

Managers today are managing in a legal minefield and the only sure way to win a lawsuit is to prevent it from occurring in the first place. This comprehensive guide to employment law tells exactly how to do just that. Published by Prentice Hall and updated in 1994, it's written for managers, executives, and business owners, and delivers legal explanations in plain, easy-to-understand English, with vivid case examples and succinct guidelines for implementing the law.

The book covers every potential trouble area in employee relations, including discrimination, harassment, privacy (including drug testing and electronic privacy issues), illegal questions to avoid in interviews, safety, stress, repetitive strain injuries, manager's rights, and references.

After reading this book, managers will have a good overview of every law they need to know, be able to implement new policies and procedures to comply with the most important regulations, and understand that treating employees fairly is the best way to prevent lawsuits.
