Cihon and Castagnera's EMPLOYMENT AND LABOR LAW provides a comprehensive and accessible introduction to employment and labor relations law for the non-legal professional in human resource management and labor relations. The authors emphasize employment, labor relations, and social issues and legislation in the work environment as they cover federal and state laws governing employer/union and employee/employer relations. Case excerpts, including occasional dissents and/or concurring opinions, allow the reader to experience the fact that law develops from the resolution of differing views. This exposure to differing opinions and positions--as well as the immersion in the legal reasoning process--will prove valuable to those students who may become involved in quasi-legal aspects of employee relations. In no other area of the law are non-lawyer professionals exposed to such legal regulation as are human resources directors and industrial relations specialists. EMPLOYMENT AND LABOR LAW will develop the skills of legal reasoning and analysis that are vital for successful performance in such situations.
