Bennett-Alexander and Hartman's Employment Law for Business, 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.

The Oxford Handbook of Empirical Legal Research

The empirical study of law, legal systems and legal institutions is widely viewed as one of the most exciting and important intellectual developments in the modern history of legal research. Motivated by a conviction that legal phenomena can and should be understood not only in normative terms but also as social practices of political, economic and ethical significance, empirical legal researchers have used quantitative and qualitative methods to illuminate many aspects of law's meaning, operation and impact. In the 43 chapters of The Oxford Handbook of Empirical Legal Research leading scholars provide accessible and original discussions of the history, aims and methods of empirical research about law, as well as its achievements and potential. The Handbook has three parts. The first deals with the development and institutional context of empirical legal research. The second - and largest - part consists of critical accounts of empirical research on many aspects of the legal world - on criminal law, civil law, public law, regulatory law and international law; on lawyers, judicial institutions, legal procedures and evidence; and on legal pluralism and the public understanding of law. The third part introduces readers to the methods of empirical research, and its place in the law school curriculum.

We often define ourselves by our work, with a frequent introductory question being, 'What do you do?' Because we devote so much of our lives to our jobs, anything affecting them is of special concern to us. The federal government has assumed a role of protecting the rights of labourers, with the prime example being the Fair Labor Standards Act, which is the primary federal statute in the area of minimum wage, overtime pay, and child labour. Since its adoption in 1938, the act has undergone several amendments and periodic changes. A constant issue is the level of the minimum wage, with many public officials and labour groups calling for its raise. Some though, have made proposals to weaken federal wage protection and exempt certain businesses from the law. Heated debate continues on both sides of this topic, which so closely impacts a significant portion of the population. Federal oversight of labour and work conditions is a fact of life, and the standards by which authorities fulfil this task need to be understood. This book studies the history behind and application of the Fair Labor Standards Act in its three distinct areas of minimum wage, overtime pay, and child labour. information this book holds becomes necessary to developing a clear vision of how the government influences the 'workaday world'.
