Bennett-Alexander and Hartman's Employment Law for Business, 5/e 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 analyze employment law facts using concrete examples of management-related legal dilemmas that do not present clear-cut solutions. The methods 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 Features

  • Chapters 1-3 now explore and delineate the basic structure of employment regulation in a chronological and intuitive format.
  • Because the issue of testing and performance appraisals appear at the commencement or early on in the employment relationship and often have implications for the discrimination chapters, they are now addressed earlier in the 5th edition.
  • Each chapter features new end of chapter questions based on updated case law or problems.
