This seminar is an intermediate level program.

Labor and Employment Law for South Carolina Lawyers, Fifth Edition
Edited by: M. Malissa Burnette and Leigh M. Nason

This comprehensive guide for South Carolina lawyers covers every major aspect of both federal and South Carolina labor and employment law. Our distinguished editors and more than 45 contributing authors–many of whom are certified specialists in labor and employment law– have teamed up to produce a Fifth Edition of this truly balanced and unique treatise covering this pervasive and complex area of law. Federal and state statutes, regulations, common law and administrative procedures are discussed in a thorough and organized fashion with emphasis on providing practical, understandable answers to the most common questions that arise in most employment cases.  New for the Fifth Edition is a chapter on Workers’ Compensation.

Each book purchase comes with the complete text of the book on CD.* The CD will contain a “key word” search tool, making it easy to quickly find what practitioners need. 

This treatise will be invaluable for practitioners seeking a ready reference for employment law questions that arise with their own employees or their clients, whether in private practice or the public sector.

Attendees of the May 17th program, Recent Developments in Employment & Labor Law for South Carolina Practitioners, will be offered an opportunity to pre-order the new Fifth Edition at a discount of $10 off the retail cost. Pre-order forms will be emailed to attendees with seminar confirmation materials and will be available onsite the day of the program.

*Because the complete text of the book is included on CD, this publication may not be returned.
