The first book on this topic in more than 30 years, Construction Industry Labor and Employment Law discusses the many unique variations in this industry, from general labor and employment law principles to a multitude of specific issues.
The construction business has always differed from other industries in its employment patterns and contracting relationships, and has even developed certain separate legal doctrines, many of which developed due to the short and occasional nature of construction work and the need for employers to know their labor costs before bidding.
This book gives construction industry employers and contractors strategies to avoid legal pitfalls and navigate the unique legal circumstances that define the industry. Written by attorneys involved in some of the leading cases in the industry, the book features useful tips and practical examples. Perspectives highlighted in the book include those of attorneys representing construction contractors, property owners and managers, and trade associations.
