The Essential Guide To Federal Employment Laws, 3rd edition
By Amy DelPo and Lisa Guerin
This is a well-indexed book, updated in 2011, offering the full text of 20 federal laws affecting workers’ lives, along with plain-English explanations of each. An entire chapter is devoted to each law, explaining what is allowed and prohibited and what businesses must comply.
Although the publisher markets the book primarily to employers, we believe workers and union professionals will find it a valuable tool as well. Each law is accompanied by a section detailing how workers can assert their rights under the law, and each section offers resources and contact information if you need to learn more.
Some of the laws covered: Americans with Disabilities Act, Fair Credit Reporting Act, COBRA, Equal Pay Act, Employee Polygraph Protection Act, ERISA, OSHA, Pregnancy Discrimination Act and the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN). Plus many more. Also listed are state resources, state-by-state.
The 3rd edition was updated in 2011 to reflect the latest laws and U.S. Supreme Court decisions. 544 pages paperback
