Employment and Labor Law: Find Books

Guide to library resources in the field of employment and labor law.

Finding Books in IRIS

The IRIS catalog is the gateway to all information resources located in the Rutgers University Libraries.  Use keywords to search for the appropriate materials.  Some examples:

  • Whistleblowers
  • workplace discrimination
  • OSHA

 Searches using Library of Congress Subject Headings can yield more targeted results.  Subject headings can be further narrowed by adding:

  • location: (United States or Canada),
  • aspect: (government policy, economic aspects, social aspects),
  • population: (women, Hispanic-Americans, Asia),
  • type of publication (congresses, periodicals)

For instance:

  • Labor laws and legislation.
  • Employees--Dismissal of--Law and legislation--United States.
  • Discrimination in employment--United States.

To find other Library of Congress Subject Headings:

    • type in (“labor unions”) in the search box,
    • select “Subject begins with” from the drop-down menu under the search box.
    • “Labor unions” will be the top choice, followed by narrower forms of the subject (Labor unions--Accounting, Labor unions and communism, etc.) 
    • Also look under the “Try these too” in the list on the right.
