Employment law continues to be an exciting and fast-moving area of law, in both the courts and academia. Throughout this well-received book, the authors address the proper roles of economic incentives and legal regulations in achieving desirable outcomes in the workplace, encouraging students to question common assumptions underlying authority in the workplace, discuss simple rules and effective rules and their contrast, and examine the varied legal responses to problems in the workplace. Adaptable to a three- or four-hour course, this casebook contains few internal cross-references so that chapters can be taught out of sequence without damage to the overall integrity of the course.
The Fifth Edition of Employment Law: Cases and Materials includes the following:
The Teacher's Manual is designed to facilitate the creation of a customized course, with suggestions for emphasizing or de-emphasizing particular areas of the course. The authors include assignment suggestions for each section of the casebook. Each assignment is designed to provide materials for the standard 50-minute classroom session. The authors have also prepared an updated companion statutory supplement, Employment Law: Selected Federal and State Statutes, tracking the structure of the casebook.
This book also is available in a three-hole punched, alternative loose-leaf version printed on 8.5 x 11 inch paper with wider margins and with the same pagination as the hardbound book.
