Gain a thorough understanding of today's employment and labor-relations laws with a text written specifically for you, if you are majoring in business or other non-legal studies -- Cihon/Castagnera's EMPLOYMENT AND LABOR LAW, 10E. This comprehensive, engaging introduction uses excerpts from real case law to illustrate how labor-related disputes arise and are resolved in the courts. Eye-opening features, such as The Working Law and Ethical Dilemmas, demonstrate how labor legislation and ethical decision-making impact employees at all levels of organizations -- from hourly workers to owners.
You review the most up-to-date information on significant topics, such as the NLRB and EEOC, the Fair Labor Standards Act, the president's executive orders for undocumented immigrants and LGBTQ rights, Obamacare, the Defense of Marriage Act, and other employee-benefits developments. You also study issues relevant to you, such as FLSA and NLRB rights for unpaid interns, teaching assistants, and student-athletes. No other book combines such balanced coverage with an exceptional reader-friendly approach.
