Business & Economics by Patrick Cihon,James Castagnera
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.

Continued economic prosperity in China and its international competitive advantage have been due in large part to the labor of workers in China, who for many years toiled in underregulated workplaces. More recently, labor law reforms have been praised for their progressive measures and, at the same time, blamed for placing too many economic burdens on companies, especially those operating on the margins, which in some cases have caused business failures. This, combined with the global downturn and the millions of displaced and unemployed Chinese migrant laborers, has created ongoing debate about the labor laws. Meanwhile, the Chinese Union has organized many of the Global Fortune 500 companies, and a form of collective bargaining is occurring. Workers are pursuing their legal labor rights in increasing numbers. This book provides a clear overview of the labor and employment law environment in China and its legal requirements, as well as practices under these laws used to deal with labor issues.
Whether you are a supervisor, a business owner, or an HR professional, it is essential that you understand the laws and rules governing how one treats employees and interacts with unions. In a comprehensive and accessible format, Labor Law: A Basic Guide to the National Labor Relations Act provides a practice-oriented foundation on labor law. The book sheds light on one of America's most important laws and one which is also, perhaps, the most misunderstood. This book presents an overview of labor and employment laws such that managers may understand their rights as employers as well and their employees' rights. It covers an introduction to the topic of labor and employment law as well as a brief history within the United States. Other chapters deal with unions and union relations, collective bargaining agreements, grievances, labor arbitration, unfair labor practice proceedings, and strikes and lockouts. The author does not focus on complex regulations and convoluted case law, but distills them to reveal the essence of the NLRA and how it works. As important as it is, at times labor law can seem counter-intuitive. Written by a highly experienced labor lawyer, this book contains concise explanations in an easy-to-use format. Clearly delineating a process that can be fraught with traps for the unwary, it supplies a quick reference that can be used in a crisis situation to understand the parameters of what you can and cannot do.
