    Ben Franklin claims an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. I am an employment law attorney. I represent plaintiffs in sexual harassment cases only. I bought this book because the chapter on sexual harassment alone is excellent. Why did I buy it? Because it lists all the steps to follow to prevent harassment from occurring, and the steps to follow if harassment occurs and needs to be investigated. I use books like this as depo guidelines. If an employer doesn’t follow steps like those outlined in this book, I will win the lawsuit. If the employer does follow the steps, then I can only win if the harassment was perpetrated by a supervisory-level employee (employer is strictly liable in California in that case). If you are an HR professional in California and follow this man’s steps to prevent and investigate sexual harassment complaints, my caseload will diminish. Isn’t that alone worth the price of this book if you are a California employer?
