Product Description: Establish inclusive policies to increase productivity and profitability

Until recently, the topic of diversity in the workplace had been limited to race and gender issues. In the past decade, however, there has been a growing awareness that sexual orientation is also a valid component of diversity. Even more importantly, the inclusion of this aspect of diversity and workplace education about it in organizational policy and programs are positive, revenue-enhancing actions for business organizations. This is true whether the organization in question is a municipal employer, a college/university, a nonprofit, or a private sector employer.

The first edition of Straight Talk About Gays in the Workplace was the only book available to address sexual orientation for employers concerned about this aspect of diversity. This new edition is still the only book to do so. The book's approach is positive and practical, offering not only the 'why'and the 'what', but also the 'how-to', with strategies and tools to improve any workplace relative to this part of human resources. This new edition is fully updated with state-of-the-art information on:
  • domestic partner benefits (DPBs)

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.

8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
