" Employment Law for Business and Human Resources Professionals, 4th Edition explores the statutory and common law concepts surrounding the employer/employee relationship. It addresses topics crucial for human resources professionals, including workplace harassment, treatment of mental stress, precarious work, increases to minimum wage, and “equal pay for equal work” provisions. This text grounds discussion of laws and policies in real-world events. It provides a broad overview of how aspects of employment law and society interact through discussion of distribution of income, how working contributes to one’s sense of self, and social policy issues. Additionally, numerous cases are referenced throughout to illustrate and reinforce important concepts. Examining workplace laws in this way equips readers with a deeper understanding of employment law that will allow them to minimize risks and liabilities, be aware of the implications of actions proposed or taken, and know when to seek expert legal advice."--Publisher's website.
