Beachfront Press is honored to introduce Boston-area author, professor Frederick T. Golder. His latest book, UNCIVIL RIGHTS: A Guide to Workers' Rights, is perfectly suited for these tough economic times. People are losing jobs at a record pace. The unemployment rate is the highest it has been in 26 years. As the job market continues to tighten, workers seem more expendable, and a more cavalier attitude toward workers' rights has a tendency to develop.
In an age of corporate bailouts and Wall Street favoritism, media attention to workers' rights issues has languished. In the media UNCIVIL RIGHTS should garner the sort of attention that "the common man" deserves. Professor Golder is determined to make a difference. He's a passionate workers' rights advocate, always brimming with interesting, timely, practical advice and anecdotes.
This is the book you need to understand your job rights.
Uncivil Rights not only describes your rights in the workplace, it teaches you how to protect those rights, and provides strategies for surviving your employment crisis. Golder's trial experience and employment knowledge provide workers and their employers a means to resolve workplace conflicts peacefully.
Uncivil Rights describes in detail the laws that affect workers and provides strategies to use to avoid being one of the millions of American workers who will lose their jobs. With unemployment reaching record levels and a severe economic recession not seen since the Great Depression, this is the book you need to protect yourself. What are your rights at work? How can you resolve workplace disputes, and keep your job and your sanity? What resources are available for workers? What if you decide to sue your employer? What can you expect? Uncivil Rights answers those questions and more, and provides the tools you need to succeed at work. Learn what you need to know about:
- Your employment rights;
- How to protect those rights;
- Methods for resolving conflicts at work;
- Resources to help at work and in court;
- Overcoming obstacles in court.
