Shawn Smith and Rebecca Mazin have written a handbook to help business owners, managers and human-resources officers navigate the deep and often turbulent waters of employment law and policy. Drawing on Smith’s experience as the president of Next Level Consulting, the book uses a question-and-answer format to address key areas such as employee selection, policies, performance management, training, employee relations and retention, compensation, benefits, major employment laws, termination and difficult issues such as e-mail monitoring and workplace violence. Understanding these issues, Smith says, can help companies avoid a host of legal and managerial problems.
