The Academic Librarian's Human Resources Handbook. Employer Rights and Responsibilities.
Baldwin, David A.
This handbook offers "how to" guidance on library management and provides a single source for laws, regulations, executive orders, guidelines, and court decisions on employee and employer rights and responsibilities. Detailed information is provided on: recruiting and selecting personnel; the employment relationship; wages and hours; employee benefits; health, safety, and privacy; discipline and discharge; and disability and workers compensation. It covers routine procedures and regulations, such as those for social security, as well as issues such as discrimination in the workplace. One chapter, "What To Do Before You Phone an Attorney," covers such concerns as violations of employee rights, reassignments, and personal problems. Potential management difficulties are also discussed and case problems with suggestions for resolution are presented. (AEF)
