These legal concepts, and many more, are addressed in this comprehensive text. New features include property law, personal service contracts, sale/purchase of goods, and Equal Pay Act and Title VII. Plus, expanded coverage on sexual harassment, scenarios, memory/self-test tools, and Internet-linked case studies.
