Frederick Thomas Golderabout this book: This is a non-fiction guidebook explaining workers' rights in clear, understandable language and providing a framework where both the employee and the employer can resolve workplace disputes without resorting to lawsuits. Litigation is costly, time consuming and with unpredictable outcomes. This book also explains the legal process.
• What inspired you to write this book?
I have been an advocate for workers' rights for many years and have represented hundreds of clients. There was no book that explained workers' rights or the court system in clear and understandable language. This is a book that can be used by anyone who has a work related issue.
• Who are the primary readers for your book?
Anyone who has a work-related issue or who wants to understand the court system. The book is also used as a textbook for students who want to know and understand labor and employment law.
• How did you come up with the title?
As a trial lawyer, I know how unfair and arbitrary courts can be in dealing with work-related issues. I was active in the civil rights movement in the 60's so the title had to be: Uncivil Rights.
• Why did you choose this cover?
My publisher did the cover.
• What was the hardest part of writing your book?
Simplifying the language and getting rid of the legal jargon to make it understandable to regular people.
• Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?
It reinforced my views that lawsuits were a lose/lose situation and that we have to find ways of resolving workplace disputes that will result in win/win solutions.
• Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
People have to stand up for their rights and be proactive. Workers are entitled to be treated with dignity and respect.
