The HR Professional’s Complete Guide to Federal Employment and Labor Law

The HR Professional’s Complete Guide to Federal Employment and Labor Law




In 1994, I started writing this book. I wanted a reference book for HR people that they could grab and reference quickly to find the answers to their questions about Employment and Labor law that would be in plain simple wording without a lot of “legal-eze.”

I also wanted a comprehensive source for anyone wanting to learn Employment and Labor Law. Employment and Labor law are critical to HR professionals and anyone who has employees.

In fact, if the HR professional was a person, the feet would be the law:
You can’t take a step these days if you don’t know what the law says. If you do, you are likely to get a foot blown off…and fired.

I also wanted a tool that I could easily update and important changes in the law occurred.

That idea has now evolved into the “HR PROFESSIONAL’S GUIDE TO EMPLOYMENT AND LABOR LAW.”

Today, this book totals over 1,000 pages, it is fully indexed, it is broken down by subject matter chapters and it is constantly being digitally updated to reflect the most current changes in the law. So, HR people can feel comfortable in doing their own legal research to investigate whatever areas of Employment and Labor Law they need to know.

Also, since this book is in a pdf format and is always online for anyone who needs it, it is very easy to access it whenever you need it. You can also download it and review it in your own digital devices.

You can download the whole book or just access the website whenever you want. You will get notices when anything has changed.
