Employers face a myriad of issues when hiring: how to recruit, whom to select, how to interview, Equal Employment Opportunity policies, fair salary offerings, health issues, performance evaluations, behavior/disciplinary actions, turnover, and the list goes on and on. Practical Human Resources Management for Public Managers: A Case Study Approach provides insight into human resource trends and demonstrates how complex situations can be successfully managed by public sector practitioners. The authors take us step by step into the "real world" with examples of historical events that compare "What Happened" with "What Could Have Happened" as well as suggested readings for more in-depth analysis and important points to remember. Exploring the space between theory and what actually occurs in the world, this book supplies instructional case studies based upon actual events. The authors introduce key human resources issues with clear, concise language and provide techniques to address these issues in a real-world setting. The case studies cover legal and liability issues, recruiting and hiring, employee performance, reward and discipline issues, retention, termination, workplace violence, mentorship, motivation, and managing through transitions. The authors bring know-how from a wide array of working environments, including teaching and administrative experience in public universities and management in municipalities of various population sizes from a few thousand to more than a million. They have also worked in a variety of capacities within these organizations, which allow them to see different perspectives on how different departments handle similar situations. They use their from-the-trenches knowledge to explore pragmatic ways to deal with human resource issues in public sector workplaces.

An outstanding reference that demystifies the legal process for expert witnesses in land and natural resource disputes A vast and complex body of laws surrounds the ownership and disposition of land resources today––so it is no wonder that land experts who assist in land and natural resource disputes often find themselves grappling with the challenging intricacies of the modern legal process. This book offers a vital road map through the labyrinth of civil laws and procedures that professionals who assist in such cases must navigate. In Surveying the Courtroom, Second Edition, John Briscoe explains––in plain English––all pertinent rules of evidence and procedure. From the filing of a complaint to its resolution, he guides you through each phase of a land or natural resource lawsuit, clearly describing the land expert′s role at each step along the way. He supplies numerous fascinating and instructive case studies and vignettes to illustrate his points and to better prepare you for crucial developments that may arise during the course of a trial. He also provides copious references to applicable codes, statutes, and court decisions, making it easier for you to find the resources needed to verify or refute points, or to arrive at a more profound understanding of a particular subject. Surveying the Courtroom, Second Edition is an indispensable working resource for land surveyors, title abstractors, property appraisers, geologists, hydrologists, geographers, oceanographers, civil and environmental engineers, and all other professionals who are called upon to help courts reach decisions in land and natural resource disputes.

Beginning in the mid 1970s the manufacturer of Benedictin was sued repeatedly over allegations that the drug--prescribed for pregnant women to overcome the effects of morning sickness--had caused birth defects. Yet in twenty years no one has collected any damages. Joseph Sanders offers a comprehensive study of this litigation. Sanders looks at the cases from the different perspectives of the parties involved: attorneys, scientists, and juries. He discusses the role of lawyers in the development of claims and in the litigation, how scientific evidence is used in these trials, and the role of judges in managing and resolving these cases. Increasingly, courts have decided who will bear the costs of the side effects of many products. These cases often involve thousands of individual law suits and present a variety of issues for the courts, including how to determine factual issues of causation, the value of claims, and how to fairly manage a large volume of claims. And yet the role of the judicial system in resolving liability issues involving large numbers of claims is highly controversial. This book will appeal to scholars of the American judiciary and those interested in the role of courts in product liability matters. Joseph Sanders is Professor of Law, University of Houston Law Center.

HANDBOOK OF HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT IN GOVERNMENT, THIRD EDITION The practice of public human resource management has evolved significantly in recent years due to increased outsourcing, privatization, and the diminution of public employee rights. This thoroughly revised and updated edition of the classic reference Handbook of Human Resource Management in Government offers authoritative, state-of-the-art information for public administrators and human resource professionals. The third edition features contributions from noted experts in the field, including Donald E. Klingner, Mary E. Guy, Jonathan P. West, Jeffrey L. Brudney, Montgomery Van Wart, J. J. Steven Ott, Norma M. Riccucci, and many more. Praise for the Handbook of Human Resource Management in Government "This third edition of the Handbook of Human Resource Management in Government is an essential resource for scholars, practitioners, and general readers in need of concise summaries of up-to-date, cutting-edge, public personnel administration research. No other handbook on the market more concisely, more comprehensively, more clearly synthesizes this vast, rapidly changing field that remains so vital to effective government performance." —RICHARD STILLMAN, editor-in-chief, Public Administration Review "The Handbook of Human Resource Management in Government comprehensively and seamlessly blends theory and practice. The result is a clear road map that can finally make HR a key player in helping the government meet the unprecedented challenges facing our nation, our states, and our communities." —BOB LAVIGNA, vice president, Research, Partnership for Public Service, Washington, DC "With each successive edition, Condrey's Handbook of Human Resource Management in Government becomes a more essential tool for graduate students who wish to improve their understanding of this field. Condrey's own expertise has enabled him to take contributions from leading experts in the field and shape them into a reader that is comprehensive, engaging, and authoritative." —DONALD E.

Receive complimentary lifetime digital access to the eBook with new print purchase. What Makes A Student's Guide to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure Different? Text of the Rules, Title 28, and Constitution: The 2018-2019 edition of supplies what your students need--the text of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (as amended through December 1, 2018), the frequently-consulted sections of the U.S. Judiciary Code, and the text of the U.S. Constitution. Most Rules Supplements available to students contain that same content. But where most supplements stop, A Student's Guide continues on.... PLUS... Student-Friendly Orientation to Each Rule: What many students often find challenging in studying Civil Procedure--and what is less likely to be found in either a casebook or a conventional study aid--is an understanding of how each Rule "fits" into the master scheme of federal civil practice generally. This edition of A Student's Guide offers students that very guidance. Three added features now follow the text of each Rule: "How This Rule Fits In" explains for students the context of each Rule and the role each plays in federal civil practice; "The Architecture of this Rule" which helps students unpack the structure of those Rules that are especially long and confusing; "How This Rule Works in Practice" which is designed to help students understand each Rule's application, subpart by subpart, and the real-world, practical life of practicing attorneys. PLUS... Citations to Interpretative Case Law: Also unlike most other Rules Supplements, A Student's Guide provides students with select, leading interpretative case law analyzing the Rules and their subparts. This, then, converts this resource into a "finding aid" of sorts, as students work through applied problems in the context of the Rules. PLUS... A "Getting Started" Overview to Federal Practice Concepts: Because many of the related core concepts of federal practice are an amalgam of law found in Rules, statutes, constitutional provisions, and case law, A Student's Guide bridges that gulf with quick, orienting discussions of central practice concepts like personal jurisdiction, subject-matter jurisdiction, removal, venue, forum non conveniens, the Erie Doctrine, and claim and issue preclusion. These distillations allow students to acquire a broad view of those related practice contexts. PLUS... A Handy Overview of Federal Appellate Practice: This edition of A Student's Guide also includes a concise, student-friendly overview of federal appellate practice. PLUS... A Helpful Orientation to the Rulemaking Process: A Student's Guide also includes a brief orientation for students to the process of federal rulemaking, how the Rules originally came into existence, and how they are amended.
