Fair, Square, and Legal: Safe Hiring, Managing and Firing Practices to Keep You and Your Company Out of Court

By Donald H. Weiss

It provides both a thorough overview of safe managerial procedures and a quick look-up source for specific situations you may encounter. Fair, Square, and Legal isn't just about protecting yourself. It's also a guide to being fair and honest in your treatment of subordinates - after all, many lawsuits have been won because an employee was, in fact, treated unjustly or carelessly. As Weiss explains, ""Respecting your people and their rights makes good management sense."" This unique book shows how to take care of your employees--and yourself!""
