EEO Law and Personnel Practices

April 1993 | 403 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
"[This book] is a valuable reference for HR graduate students and practitioners." --Personnel Psychology "Overall, I view it as a masterful effort to absorb and convey the complexity of the legal requirements that apply to employment opportunities for protected classes of applicants and employees. I believe it will serve well as a reference source for human resource specialists, advanced undergraduate and graduate students, and even attorneys who have limited backgrounds in this aspect of labor law." --Edward L. Levine, Psychology, University of South Florida Aimed at helping management students, industrial psychologists, and human resource and personnel officers who untangle the federal regulation on EEO laws, this book will help the reader understand which law applies to a specific population and how it may affect an organization. Focusing on those federal regulations (including the new Americans with Disabilities Act) that deal with race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, and disability, Gutman uses six key questions to examine the various laws and court decisions: Who is protected? From whom? Against what type of practices? Using what types of penalties for breaking the law? And what are the types of defenses and attacks used in litigation? Nearly all of the chapters conclude with a section on compliance so readers can apply these lessons to their own personnel practices.
