    Employment Law makes no claims it cannot fulfill, it says on the cover it’s a “desk reference” and that’s exactly what it is. It’s meant to be used as a reference not to replace general counsel. The book is arranged like an encyclopedia in alpha order by the term. Once you find your term then the book offers a definition, case study in some cases and cross reference of related terms.
    Nolo has always been a name I trust when it comes to legal issues. Even their website has helped me with personal issues where clarity was needed. When I first saw the book on Amazon; I made the mistake of overlooking the phrase “Desk Reference”. I didn’t expect the book to list HR terms and give definitions, but that is exactly what it is nothing more.
    As an HR professional I think this book is great for the novice, as well as the seasoned HR professional in need of a quick definition or an explanation of terms. Knowing the terms are great but to use them correctly along with company policies and procedure is needed as well. I respect the fact that under the more complicated terms there’s footnotes which offer the reader a tad bit more detail.
    Whether you’re trying to understand COBRA or what is meant by a “class action suit” it’s here. My personal disclaimer is I think this book should be used for what it was intended; a desk reference and not to replace or even be used until your internal counsel arrives.

    A complimentary copy of this book was provided by Amazon Vine for the purpose of this review.

    I’ve used several NOLO books and have found them to be consistently useful, informative and well researched. Generally, these NOLO resource books are helpful both to laypersons and lawyers.

    The Employment Law: The Essential HR Desk Reference seems to target HR professionals more than lawyers. The Desk Reference isn’t arranged according to topic but instead covers main concepts and terms in alphabetical order. The terms are covered carefully and with some of the most recent case law to give the reader/user a fuller understanding of each topic. But the HR Desk Reference should be used for a better understanding of the concepts and recent jurisprudence and should be relied upon hand in hand with specific advice from a lawyer.

    I’m not a HR Professional and requested the book in order to get a better understanding of the concepts in employment law and HR – from an employee and small business owner’s point of view. I found the book helpful for my purposes. Considering that Employment Law: The Essential HR Desk Reference is sold for $49.99, while it is useful, I feel that the other NOLO publications that I’ve read and used offer better value.
