The Essential Guide for California Workers!

California Workers' Rights: A Manual of Job Rights, Protections and Remedies
Fourth edition with a new 2013 update by David A. Rosenfeld, Miles E. Locker, and Nina G. Fendel.

A basic overview of the legal protections for workers under California and federal law, written in understandable language, designed for use by workers and those who represent them. The California Workers' Rights: 2013 Update covers significant changes to the laws governing wage theft, Workers' Compensation, family leave, disability rights, and more, as well as major cases governing important rights like meal and rest breaks. The 2013 Update also includes new sections on the Affordable Care Act, immigration, and social media.

"One of the most useful books California workers will ever encounter...Union stewards, advocates, leaders and working people will find the answers to hundreds of burning questions. California Workers' Rights always reminds me of how hard we fought for these rights, and why we must continue to defend them."

-Art Pulaski, Executive Secretary-Treasurer
California Labor Federation, AFL-CIO
