Congratulations to Steve Willborn (Nebraska), Stewart Schwab (Cornell), John Burton (Rutger, Labor Relations), and Gillian Lester (Berkeley,) on the new Fourth Edition of their widely adopted Employment Law: Case and Materials (Lexis-Nexis 4th ed.).
Here's more about the new edition from the LERA listserv:
The book covers a wide range of topics, including employment at will, employee privacy rights, enforcement of noncompetition clauses, discrimination, wages and hours legislation, employee benefits, including health insurance, workers’ compensation, occupational safety and health, and enforcement of employment rights through arbitration and the courts. This edition is au courant, as demonstrated by the new chapter on leave time.
The casebook is accompanied by new editions of the statutory supplement and the teacher’s manual. You can view the Table of Contents at www.unl.edu/employ. The new chapter on leave time is also there. LexisNexis, the publisher, will make PDF versions of the entire casebook available for review this month (December 2006). You may contact Sean Caldwell (sean.m.caldwell@lexisnexiscom) for access to the PDF files. The casebook, the statutory supplement, and the teacher’s manual will be available for distribution in January. The new edition will thus be available in time for spring classes. Please contact Lisa Hughes (firstname.lastname@example.org / 518-487-3024) to request a review copy of Employment Law: Cases and Materials.
