Learn why even employment lawyers are keeping this book on their desks
The Employer’s Practical Legal Guide, newly revised, steers you through the treacherous waters of hiring, firing, appraising and disciplining your employees. More than 80 checklists and self-audit questionnaires are included to help you target your company’s weak spots—and correct them before you end up in court.
Family and Medical Leave—Since an employee took his paternity leave, you’ve made layoffs. Do you have to take him back? See Section 13.
Recruitment—During an interview, a job candidate talked about her children. You didn’t hire her, but she’s back—with a lawyer. How can you prove you’re not guilty of discrimination? See Section 1.
Downsizing—You’ve been asked to cut your staff. Performance-wise, you know who should go. But legally, it’s not so easy: Two are older than 65, half are women, three are immigrants and one was out of work half of last year on disability. How can you make the cuts without making appearances in court for the next 10 years? See Section 7.
