A WOMAN’S RIGHTS

Have you ever been asked about your child care plans in an interview? Have you ever found yourself unjustly fired and not know what to do about it? If so, The Working Woman’s Legal Survival Guide: Know Your Workplace Rights Before It’s Too Late (Prentice Hall Press, $25) by Steven Mitchell Sack can help you put things in perspective.

The guide has many obvious and not-so-obvious illegal employment situations, followed by resolutions and helpful tips. It gives concise information to help you negotiate for better job security as well as a list of things you should know if your job is in jeopardy. It also covers benefits and entitlements granted by law, including health coverage such as COBRA and retirement benefits.

In addition, the book also offers a host of sample letters and contracts, plus resolution options you can use if you find yourself facing one of the problems it covers. Self-employed or independent contractors will also find this an important resource.

Although this guide is by no means a substitute for sound legal advice, the easy-to-understand, detailed information will certainly put you on the right track.
