In our increasingly litigious society, churches and religious organizations need to pay careful attention to the changing legal landscape. Church Hiring and Volunteer Selection addresses the growing issue of church hiring (and firing) practices and provides a user-friendly guide to educate church members in how to avoid negligent claims. This is not just a legal handbook; Lynn R. Buzzard and Susan M. Edwards write in a theological context and address the mission of the church in today's society. While written from a Baptist perspective, all demoninations will find the book valuable. Buzzard and Edwards discuss hiring in various special contexts, including the hiring of child-care workers and volunteer selection, and include a section devoted to minimizing liability in the hiring process. Buzzard and Edwards discuss the application to churches of various pieces of federal legislation, including the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Equal Pay Act, and the family and Medical Leave Act. A 78-page index contains numerous forms that can be used in the hiring process. Published by J. W. Edwards Inc. jointly with the Church-State Resource Center, Norman A. Wiggins School of Law, Campbell University, and the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina.
