• Medical exams
• Credit reports
• Arrest and conviction records
It also deals with workers' rights, the relevant state and local laws protecting those rights, the various causes of action, and new and changing areas of law, including discrimination laws, labor laws, privacy statutes, common-law torts, arbitration guidelines, and sample pleadings. You'll find sample policies, contracts, applications, and letters requesting reasons for discharge.
