Employers and the Law: 2013-14 Anthology of Best Articles Kindle Edition
The articles in this collection were written by leading US employment law experts. In selecting these articles, the goal was to include articles that are concise, clearly-written, practical, and relevant to the responsibilities of business owners, managers, and human resource professionals—and to their legal advisors.
The result is a mixture of two types of articles. Some articles focus on fundamental, recurring legal concerns. These include, for example, articles on employer responsibilities relating to holiday activities, off-duty conduct, record keeping, reductions in force, retaliation, seasonal workers, severance agreements, trade secrets, and workplace violence.
Other articles address issues that have recently received national attention as a result of changes in the business and legal environment. These include articles on employer responsibilities relating to criminal background checks, Bring Your Own Device policies, workplace bullying, electronic communications, “leaning in,” obesity, social media, telecommuting, and workplace wellness programs.
The articles are organized into four groupings. The first group (“Opening Test”) will test whether you have a sound understanding of employers’ legal responsibilities. The second group (“Broad Coverage”) includes review articles that summarize legal developments in 2013 and agendas for 2014. Articles in the third group (“Global Concerns”) address US employers’ increasing concerns with the legal environment outside the United States. The fourth group of articles (“Specific Topics”) comprises most of the book and covers specific topics relating to ongoing and emerging legal responsibilities of employers.
We hope that the resources in this book will help you achieve business success in a responsible manner.

Con: I wish there were suggestions for additional readings on each of the topics chosen for inclusion in the text. As noted by another reviewer there are many sources, and for my purposes, guidance toward which to pursue for further education would help.
While another reviewer posits that you could read all of these articles for free online, I would argue that the purpose of an anthology is having an expert in the field select the very best articles on a given subject and present them as a collection. While the articles in this text have spurred me to read and search for further information and more articles on the subjects presented in this book, it is that they have been so adroitly selected and presented together that I find valuable.
This is an excellent reference for anyone in business--employer and employee alike.
