Employment Relations and Human Resource Management

Readings, Cases, and Materials
By Raymond L. Hogler

Paperback ISBN: 978-1-60927-006-3, 226 pages


This text focuses on employment relations and human resource management in a new way. As the body of law grows increasingly complex, and the regulatory environment becomes more important to navigate, managers must have a strong grasp of the legal issues affecting the dealings between workers and employers. This text engages those issues and prepares students and future managers to understand, articulate, and apply legal concepts across all levels of management.

Key Features:

  • While a comprehensive overview, the materials also allow students to critically analyze legal documents and principles.
  • For each specific topic, students examine statutes, cases, and leading interpretations of doctrine. A set of questions offers points for discussion, while optional exercises allow students to more deeply explore significant issues.
  • For individuals with responsibilities in hiring, firing, and compensation, avoiding legal entanglements is an essential part of the job.

This is the text for providing human resource students a foundation of legal understanding as they prepare for their careers.
