Tortious Interference in the Employment Context: A State-by-State Survey, Fourth Edition examines business-versus-business suits, as well as suits brought by former employees against employers. The treatise provides comprehensive coverage of tortious interference in the employment context on a state-by-state basis in an easy to use, question-and-answer format.

Two main types of actions analyzed in the Fourth Edition are: where there is a contract, tortious interference with that contract; and where there is no contract or the contract is unenforceable, tortious interference with commercial relationships or with prospective economic advantage/expectancies.

Using a uniform outline, the treatise examines—for each state—the elements of these two causes of action, the defenses that may be successfully raised and the types of relief available.
