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.

Since its original publication in 2000, this text has been intended for students studying HRM for the first time. Its major features are its comprehensive and wide-ranging nature which deals with all major aspects of HRM in a down to earth and practical way, alongside the necessary theoretical underpinning. The key strength is its accessibility to students new to the subject area where it combines a clear explanation with numerous relevant and interesting cases and comments. The range and nature of HRM is fully illustrated by a combination of real life and fictional case studies which heighten awareness of key issues involved in HRM today. This new edition will continue to be appropriate for undergraduate courses, especially first and second year students studying an HRM degree but also for post-graduate courses where many students are new to the field of HRM. It continues to be divided into 12 chapters to provide one topic a week on a modular course, but it may be extended into two semesters. It has been revised to place a greater emphasis on the role of human resources in improving organisational and employee performance. These revisions include the greater use of technology in resourcing and development areas, the change of emphasis from ‘recruitment/selection’ to ‘talent management’ and the use of social networking developments as an aid to HR management. Recent legal developments will also be covered including those relating to age discrimination and the regulation of agency workers.
