Employment Law for Business - 3rd edition

Employment Law for Business (ISBN10: 0072314036; ISBN13: 9780072314038)
ISBN13: 978-0072314038
ISBN10: 0072314036

Summary: Bennett-Alexander addresses law and employment decisions from a managerial perspective. It is intended to instruct students on how to manage effectively and efficiently with full comprehension of the legal ramifications of their decisions. Students are shown how to think and analyze employment law facts using concrete examples of management related legal dilemmas without clear-cut solutions. The method of arriving at resolutions are emphasized, so that when the facts
of the workplace problem are not quite the same, the student can still reach a good decision based on the legal considerations required by law which remain relevant.
New to This Edition
  • Website - The website for Bennett will include an overview of the book and its supplements,
  • a table of contents, features of the new edition and author background information. Instructors will have access to downloadable supplements, teaching tips/ideas from the authors, case updates and Internet Question answers. The student portion of the website will include Internet Question Links, Employment Law Resource links with a summary for each, and links to Colleges.com and Business Week. Author Laura P. Hartman will be heavily involved in providing content updates for the site.
  • Expanded coverage of labor law. Because Labor Law is a very different and discrete part of the law than employment law, the authors feel it is important that students be familiar with all the concepts to have a more complete knowledge of the workplace.

Features
  • The authors have removed unnecessary ''legalese'' and procedural matters from the cases in the text, so that students can better understand the managerial aspects of the case, not just the legal concepts and issues at hand.
  • Case-end questions are designed as critical-thinking questions to get the student go beyond the legal concepts and think critically about management issues from an employer's standpoint. The authors feel addressing the issues in the way they are likely to arise in life greatly enhances a students learning ability and likelihood of recognition and understanding of these situations when they arise in the workplace.
  • Inclusion of boxed items from everyday sources such as People and USA Today shows students how text material relates to real management situations in the workforce.
  • Background information is provided on relevant social or political movements so students know the history behind the laws in place.
  • An icon denoting the presence of URLs at the book website are provided in the margin of the text for students to do further research on the topic currently being discussed.
