It is well written, reads very easily and would be my choice as a general reference book concerning employment laws.

It should be noted that the book covers federal Laws and not state laws."

She contrasts public perceptions of harassment with legal definitions, and she identifies who harasses and suggests reasons why they do. Neville tracks an actual case of harassment and shows the "web of consequences" that befalls companies in which harassment occurs... Appendixes summarize major cases, include applicable legal statutes, offer a sample sexual harassment policy, and advise how and where to file a claim of harassment.
Reviewer/Reader Feedback: "This book accomplishes what many of us have tried to do for most of our working lives: articulate why work so often causes suffering and reduces productivity. Usually, we know someone is bothering us at work, but we have troublre articulating exactly what it is. This is especially so when the problem is the boss, and when we seem to feel that the boss has the right to bully us. In this book, bullies will recognize themselves and will learn for the first time what behaviors they should quit imposing on others. Targets and victims of bullies will find out what to do to protect themselves."

Anyone who suffers from discrimination, or thinks they are suffering from discrimination, should read this book."
