This must-have resource comprehensively covers the many legal issues that particularly affect California public sector agencies and their officers and employees. Written and edited by an outstanding team of skilled experts who are members of The State Bar of California's Labor and Employment Law Section, the book is divided into four parts: • The Hiring Process; • Wage and Hour Laws; • Public Sector Employee Rights, Obligations and Protections; and • Public Agency Rights, Obligations and Liabilities. Within these main categories, many subjects are unique to the public sector, such as retirement, due process, conflicts of interest, free speech, contracting out governmental services, open meeting laws, political activities, and public safety employees. Other subjects, such as wage and hour law, leaves of absence, hiring, privacy rights, and various litigation issues, cover areas that affect both the public and private sectors. Although issues that apply to the private sector are covered, the emphasis in this book is on the unique issues that affect the public sector.

Unlike Europe, where most public sector workers have long been included in collective bargaining agreements, the United States excluded public employees from such legislation until the 1960s and 70s. Since then, union membership in the U.S. has grown more rapidly among public workers than among workers in the private sector. This book provides up-to-date information on public sector collective bargaining in the United States today. The editors' seek to understand the real nature of PSB by examining eight states where the action is taking place -- California, Hawaii, Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. The chapters offer unique case studies of legal origins, developments, and challenges to collective bargaining; negotiations experience and outcomes; discussion of legislation; and emphasis of histoical development as well as current practice.
