The law of hiring is a patchwork of rules. Some are directly stated in federal or state statutes and regulations, some are interpreted or derived from statutes, and others are rules of common law. In the public sector, other rules derive from the federal and state constitutions. This book covers the law of recruitment and selection as it applies to North Carolina local government and community college employers. The book will also benefit mental health authorities, water and sewer authorities, public health authorities, local ABC boards, and Councils of Government. Initial chapters of the book survey the various rules that comprise the law of hiring for public employers. Later chapters look more closely at the different stages of the hiring process. Although the book primarily focuses on how laws impact North Carolina local governments, it also covers these federal laws applicable to other states: -Fair Credit Reporting Act -Immigration Reform and Control Act -Americans with Disabilities Act -Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act -federal anti-discrimination laws -Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) The book includes an index of cases, an index of statutes, a subject index, and five appendixes related to small employers, affirmative action, validation of employment selection devices, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, and the EEOC.
