Review:

"The employee life cycle approach to this text offers students the ability to understand the employment process, from beginning to end, while considering the legal environment and its implications for business success. Walsh's personnel law book provides a solid foundation for students to successfully navigate the always changing and rarely certain areas of personnel law within an organization."

"Of all of the texts that I reviewed, this one has the most practical and usable advise for soon-be-HR practioners. The life cycle approach is strong and the writing easy to read."

"My students love the book and HR majors hold on to it as a reference."

"I use the chapter questions a great deal for class discussions. I love using them by section to spice up conversation and see if the students can apply what they've learned. I think these are one of the single most valuable elements of your book!"

"I recently graduated from Central Ohio Technical College as a Business/HR major. One of my classes...used your textbook called "Employment Law for Human Resources Practice" I just wanted to say that I enjoyed the textbook and found it very informative and humorous in some cases. Thank you for writing such a good HR reference textbook."
