This work addresses the collateral legal considerations that may affect emergency service organizations. Its primary focus is on the relationship between the emergency service employee and the organization. With the deterioration of At Will employment doctrine by Congress and courts, emerging new technologies, and the dwindling number of unionized shops, emergency service organizations face the potential of increased litigation under new and novel theories in areas which were not even fathomed by emergency service organizations 20 years ago. Written by a lawyer for non-lawyers, the book is not consumed with the basic legalese that most books of this kind are. It seeks to inform the user of his or her rights under the law in a clear and comprehensive way.
