Have a general question about employment law? Want to share a story? I welcome all comments and questions. I can't give legal advice here about specific situations but will be glad to discuss general issues and try to point you in the right direction. If you need legal advice, contact an employment lawyer in your state. Remember, anything you post here will be seen publicly, and I will comment publicly on it. It will not be confidential.

My New Book For Employees To Be Released in Fall 2012

I'm pleased to announce that I've signed with Career Press to publish my new book, tentatively titled Stand Up For Yourself Without Getting Fired: Resolve Workplace Crises Before You Quit, Get Fired, or Sue the Bastards. It will be released this coming Fall. I'll keep you posted on how to pre-order as soon as I know. The book is geared toward helping employees, independent contractors, executives - anyone who can be fired, from the janitor to the CEO. Here's the pitch:

So, you hate your job and are ready to quit. Your boss is a flaming jerk and you’re ready to tell him off. Layoffs are imminent. You think you’re about to be fired. Maybe you think you have a lawsuit that’s your ticket out of the workplace. You’re being harassed.

You face a crucial career moment. Mistakes will cost you dearly.
  
Stand Up For Yourself Without Getting Fired provides answers to these vital questions and more:
  • What Does it Mean If I Sign A Paper Saying I’m a Contractor, Not an Employee?
  • Am I Exempt From Overtime?
  • I’m Entitled to Breaks, Right?
  • My Boss Is Creating a Hostile Environment. Can I Sue?
  • I Think I’m About to Be Laid Off. How Do I Prepare?
Whether you’re a recent grad entering the workforce or an almost-retiree; newly employed or laid off after 20 years; gay or married with kids; janitor or CEO . . . buy this book if you want specific and relevant advice to help turn those bad situations around or decide to sue the bastards.
