Employment Law Reference Materials


Employment law is a particularly complex field. There are thousands of state statutes and 100 times that many cases interpreting these laws. That does not include the countless regulations, local laws and ordinances, treatises and articles, not to mention complex and comprehensive overlapping federal laws and regulations.
