Abstract:

"The number of employment-discrimination cases in the federal courts has increased by more than 2,000 percent in the past twenty years. This practical guide helps you avoid becoming part of this trend by teaching the specific management skills that will enable you to identify and resolve workplace problems before they escalate into lawsuits." "Real-life examples and a complete set of tools and exercises will help you identify your own most prevalent management sins, adjust your management style, implement organization-wide changes, and make the all-too-often adversarial manager-employee relationship fulfilling for both parties."--Jacket.
