Whether you are majoring in business or another non-legal professions, EMPLOYMENT AND LABOR LAW, 9E offers the ideal comprehensive introduction to employment and labor relations. This book uses excerpts from real law cases to illustrate how labor-related disputes arise and are resolved in the courts. Eye-opening features, such as The Working Law and Ethical Dilemma, demonstrate how labor legislation and ethical decision-making impact employees at all levels of organizations today — from hourly workers to owners. You review the most up-to-date information on the NLRB and EEOC, the Fair Labor Standards Act, President Obama’s executive orders regarding undocumented immigrants and LGBT rights, Obamacare, the Defense of Marriage Act, and other employee-benefits developments. You also study issues relevant to you, such as FLSA and NLRB rights for unpaid interns, teaching assistants, and student-athletes. No other book combines such balanced coverage with a student-friendly approach.
I teach employability and workplace success strategies at an adult male maximum institution. I was looking for a workbook to supplement my curriculum. I ordered several to try out but this one was by far the best fit. I was so happy with the content that I bought 12 more for the classroom. Both myself and my students enjoy the quotes and thought provoking worksheets. Thank you for helping this population to really get it!!
I especially like the thinking skills that are placed throughout this book. This is an area where most people (especially younger generations and those who have been unemployed for a year or more) are lacking. Making them think for themselves leads to better decision-makers and problem-solvers. Employers don’t want to babysit; they want people who can stand on their own two feet!
This Soft Skills Training Workbook is an excellent training tool. It has been very useful in training the under employed and unemployed. It’s very well written, easy to follow, comprehensive and a great value. Mr Wentz has been great to work with, easy to contact, follows up quickly, very helpful, all around nice person! I highly recommend this book and am looking forward to additional work from Mr. Wentz!
