About Featured Book:
The Rutter Group's California Practice Guide: Public Sector Employment Litigation is the definitive guide to lawsuits involving public employees and public agencies. It is an essential companion to TRG's California Practice Guide: Employment Litigation.
While public agencies and private employers are equally subject to anti-discrimination laws and to statutory enactments such as the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Fair Labor Standards Act, public agencies have many protections not enjoyed by private companies. These include special immunity, claim requirements, exhaustion requirements, limits on common law wrongful discharge actions, protections against punitive damages, and exemption from most state wage and hour laws...It is an indispensable guide for anyone working on public sector employment issues, or considering a lawsuit challenging a public agency employment decision.
