  • Description

For libraries without a human resource specialist, this text offers the necessary expertise. All the basics are covered, including hiring, performance evaluation, compensation and benefits, and collective bargaining. Particularly valuable are discussions of employment-at-will and pay equity, and detailed information on employee turnover and the marginal employee. Each chapter concludes with a summary, and appendixes provide pertinent legislation.
