    CLE Books updates Wisconsin Employment Law, Hiring and Firing in Wisconsin, and Guide to Employment Discrimination in Wisconsin

    State Bar CLE Books has released its latest supplement to Wisconsin Employment Law, a comprehensive and practical guide widely used by Wisconsin attorneys and human resources professionals alike. Wisconsin Employment Law is recognized as the source for valuable, practical, and timely information on this complex and crucial practice area.

    Although the guide primarily focuses on Wisconsin law, it also discusses the effect of federal law on Wisconsin employment. The book offers guidance on when and whether federal law preempts state law, and how to choose the appropriate forum. On this and all other topics, Wisconsin Employment Law takes an objective, neutral, and balanced approach, exploring both employer and employee perspectives and addressing employee claims and employer defenses.

    Wisconsin Employment Law is organized by topic so readers can quickly find a complete discussion of any employment problem and the applicable law. The book opens with an overview of major state and federal employment laws. Major topics covered include hiring and firing, wages and hours, employee benefits, occupational safety and health, worker's compensation, and unemployment insurance. Intensely litigated areas of employment law, such as wrongful discharge, discrimination, and noncompetition agreements, are discussed in detail.

    Originally published in 1994 and published in its third edition in 2004, the three volumes of Wisconsin Employment Law represent the combined efforts of more than 25 attorney-authors from Wisconsin law firms and more than 50 employment law experts who reviewed the original book to ensure accuracy and balance. Walter F. Kelly and Thomas W. Scrivner served as the advisors on the original publication. Wisconsin Employment Law reflects the most recent developments in statutory and case law and is supplemented regularly.

    The set also is available through the State Bar CLE online library (in partnership with Loislaw). The online version includes hyperlinks directly to the full text of cases and statutes cited, saving hours of valuable time while enhancing research and case preparation.

    The three-volume set costs $199 for members and $250 for nonmembers, plus tax and shipping. Subscribers to the State Bar's automatic supplementation service will automatically receive the supplements to Wisconsin Employment Law, Hiring and Firing in Wisconsin, and Guide to Wisconsin Employment Discrimination at a 10 percent discount.

    Due to their popularity and demand, several chapters have been released as stand-alone publications. Also supplemented regularly, the 2008 supplements to Hiring and Firing in Wisconsin and Guide to Wisconsin Employment Discrimination Law were released in March. For individuals who don't need the in-depth treatment of all the topics covered in Wisconsin Employment Law, these information-packed paperbacks may be just the ticket. Each one costs $45 for members and $60 for nonmembers.
