Sheppard Mullin Partner Adam Rosenthal Authors New Book Managing Employees Without Fear: How to Follow the Law, Build a Positive Work Culture, and Avoid Getting Sued

Society for Human Resource Management publishes new guide for managers and executives

Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton LLP is pleased to announce that Labor & Employment partner Adam Rosenthal has authored a new book Managing Employees Without Fear: How to Follow the Law, Build a Positive Work Culture, and Avoid Getting Sued, published today by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).  The 256-page book provides frontline managers and executives an overview of the U.S. employment lifecycle, with a focus on employment law compliance. 

“My goal in writing the book is to create a single resource that any business leader and people manager can use to quickly grasp the major elements of U.S. employment law and avoid many of the pitfalls associated with non-compliance,“ said Rosenthal. “Also, as businesses around the country begin to bring their employees back into their offices, it’s even more important at this critical juncture for managers to understand what the law demands of them as leaders.”

In Managing Employees Without Fear, Rosenthal provides a comprehensive, go-to practical guide for managing a legally compliant workplace, while building a positive, productive, and first-class work culture along the way. Packed with unique insights and lessons from an attorney who has counseled and represented companies and managers in thousands of workplace disputes, Managing Employees Without Feaprovides people managers with effective tools to successfully navigate complicated personnel issues.
