"This book provides a comprehensive overview of employment law and is a useful supplement to any employment law casebook. The book is divided into seven chapters.

Chapter 4 analyzes claims that employers may have against employees. Chapter 5 discusses employment terms and benefits that are directly mandated by law, like minimum wage, or strongly encouraged or regulated by law, such as pensions. Chapter 6 examines workplace health and safety. Finally, Chapter 7 discusses the expanding role of arbitration in the resolution of employment disputes."--Publisher website.
