If you are involved in public sector employee relations in the State of Michigan, you cannot afford to be without the 1994 edition of the Michigan Public Employment and Labor Relations Law manual and its 2004 Update.
The 1994 Manual set the standard as the most comprehensive resource ever compiled for Michigan public sector personnel and labor relations practitioners. The 2004 Update supplements several chapters in the 1994 edition, and adds several new chapters on topics never previously addressed, and all are written in a manner specifically designed to help Michigan public sector practitioners.
With more than 1100 pages, the 1994 Manual provides quick reference on almost every issue you are likely to encounter, including union organization, civil rights, drug testing, arbitration precedent, “at-will” employment, residency, subcontracting, ULP procedures and retiree rights.
The 2004 Update includes 200 pages of supplemented chapters, 250 pages of new materials, and the text of a dozen frequently referenced state laws. The new materials include Michigan public retirement systems, conflict of interest issues and the relationship between state & local law.
