A Guide To Tribal Employment is a practical analysis of the law, policies, and practices used by tribal government and tribal enterprise employers. This book focuses on the application of tribal, state, and federal employment laws. Moreover, it applies tribal self-determination, sovereignty, and immunity to the employment process. The book addresses employment disputes, unique employment issues in tribal gaming, and the unique policies used by tribal employers. The book’s question/answer format will help tribal administrators, human resources personnel, and tribal leadership better understand the interesting and important questions relating to tribal government.

“Richard McGee has taken a complex area of the law and turned it into an easy-to-read guide to tribal employment law that will be of value to attorneys, businesspersons, contractors, laborers, and others who engage in business with Indian tribes and their many economic enterprises. Because Indian tribes are sovereign nations with the authority to enact and enforce their own laws, an examination of tribal employment law requires a broader examination than merely learning the rules that govern the employer-employee relationship in federal and state statutes. Mr. McGee writes a book, striking the appropriate balances between the various interests at stake while ensuring the sovereign status of Indian tribes as distinct governments, that is a must-read for anyone interested in this complex and ever-changing area of the law.”
