Employment is closely connected to wealth, status, and security and is therefore a subject of interest across a range of academic disciplines. Employment Relations in the United States incorporates a wealth of research material from these different specialties to provide a historical perspective on the American workplace and the evolution of legal policies affecting employment. The analysis follows both a chronological and thematic arrangement, beginning with the importance of management practices, the growth of labor organizations and the impact of collective bargaining on employment institutions, and the subsequent rise of individual employment rights enforced through administrative and judicial means. Through its evolutionary approach, the book explains the fragmented, overlapping, and conceptually confusing regulatory environment governing workplace relations. It offers an integrated approach to such important contemporary policy issues as health care coverage, pensions, and effective dispute procedures. The book provides an analytical framework for an understanding of the unique nature of our labor markets and the role of government, employers, and unions.   Key Features   Provides students with the historical background they need to understand how the U.S. system developed and how it differs from systems in other industrialized nations Discusses individual employment rights, including protection from discrimination Covers current policy issues in employment, including raising the minimum wage, the growth of a contingent workforce, and privatizing retirement Offers a unique historical and evolutionary explanation of the nature of employment relations   As a general overview of contemporary employment relations, Employment Relations in the United States is a perfect supplement to college courses in employment law, human resource management, and collective bargaining.

Review:

"An impressive work of meticulous scholarship...provides students with an historical background and context leading to an understanding of how the American system of the organized labor movement developed and just how it differs from system in other industrialized nations. Of special interest is Hogler′s unique historical and evolutionary oriented explanation of the developmental history and nature of employment relations. Highly recommended reading -- especially for students of American employment relations and labor history."

Author: Wisconsin Bookwatch

"Mr. Hogler, a professor of labor relations and human resource management at Colorado State University, presents a superbly written, lucidly argued work. It deserves a wide audience of students as well as experts with a deep interest in today′s ′labor question.′" Author: MONTHLY LABOR REVIEW Published On: 2006-02-01

"Employment Relations analyzes the limits of these existing laws in the new political economy and suggests that in order to rebuild sustainable and just employment environments, a revival of worker collective action is crucial. Hogler′s underlying political goal is to frame employment and labor laws in a way that illuminates their inherent connection to wealth distribution, status, and security." Author: Michigan Law Review Published On: 2006-07-13
