Employment Relations and Human Resource Management

In stock


    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.

    A professor of management at Colorado State University, Raymond Hogler has worked and taught in the field of employment relations for three decades. He received Ph.D. and J.D. degrees from the University of Colorado. Following a judicial clerkship, he spent two years with a management consulting firm in Denver representing employers in labor law matters and then moved to the Center for Labor Education and Research at the University of Colorado. He then taught at the Pennsylvania State University Department of Labor Studies and Industrial Relations, where he earned tenure and promotion. His publication record includes over sixty articles in academic and legal journals and several books, the most recent of which is Employment Relations in the United States (Sage, 2004). Among other honors, he was awarded the 2007 Fulbright Distinguished Chair of Labor Law at the University of Tuscia (Viterbo, Italy) where he taught a course on American labor relations.
