Book Description

Bennett-Alexander and Hartman’s Employment Law for Business; 8th edition; (PDF); addresses law and employment decisions from a managerial perspective. It is intended to instruct students on how to manage effectively and efficiently with full comprehension of the legal ramifications of their decisions. Students are shown how to analyze employment law facts using concrete examples of management-related legal dilemmas that do not present clear-cut solutions. The methods of arriving at resolutions are emphasized so that when the facts of the workplace problem are not quite the same; the student can still reach a good decision based on the legal considerations required by law; which remain relevant.

P.S A newer version of this ebook (9th edition); is also available. See related ebooks below. We also have the test bank and other resources for this ebook on sale. Contact for more info.

NOTE: This purchase only includes the PDF eBook of Employment Law for Business 8e. No access codes are included.
