New Employment Law Guide Helps Human Resources Manage With Ease and Confidence

Nashville, TN (November 2, 2009) - To help Human Resources managers administer legally safe workplace policies and make informed recommendations to executive management, M. Lee Smith Publishers has published HR Guide to Employment Law: A Practical Compliance Reference. This 650-page book is by a team of employment law attorneys with prestigious law firms nationwide.

The Guide's 14 chapters address the most common, and most challenging, legal issues faced by the HR profession:

Americans with Disabilities Act compliance
Discipline and documentation
Personnel files
Family and Medical Leave Act compliance
Health benefits
Immigration status
Internal investigations
Labor and organizing
Privacy and electronic communication
Sexual harassment
Workplace violence

"There are a lot of individual information sources out there, many of them online. But sometimes you just want to reach for a book and get an answer in seconds," says editor Holly Jones. "We are fortunate to be associated with the Employers Counsel Network, a national affiliation of law firms representing management. Network attorneys wrote this book based on the questions and problems they help."
