This book provides a state-of-the-art review of current issues and best practices in the science of Occupational Health Psychology (OHP). OHP is a multidisciplinary and rapidly growing area of research and it is difficult or impossible for researchers to keep up with developments in all of the fields where scholars conduct OHP science. This book will help OHP scholars improve their own research by translating recent innovations in methodology into sets of concrete recommendations that will help to improve their own research as well as their training of future researchers.

Kloss (2010) Occupational Health Law (ebook)
A new edition has become needed because of the large number of changes in the law since the last edition was published in 1998. These include the Human Rights Act; the Data Protection Act 1998 which was brought into force in 2000; new case law on compensation (particularly with regard to stress); the Woolf reforms on civil procedures, especially regarding expert witnesses; and developments in equal opportunities law (e.g. maternity leave). The section on disability discrimination has been completely rewritten. Other new features include genetic testing in employment and the new offence of corporate manslaughter, and details regarding the new training and evaluation criteria that occupational health professionals are required to satisfy.

Gold (2009) Evaluating mental health disability in the workplace: model, process and analysis (ebook)
A unique collaboration between a renowned clinical professor of psychiatry and a noted legal expert, Evaluating Mental Health Disability in the Workplace approaches the topic from two distinct areas: the legal context and issues relevant to disability and disability-related evaluations, and the interplay of factors in the relationship between work and psychiatric illness. From this dual perspective, the authors advocate for higher professional standards ensuring that employers, evaluees, or third parties are provided with the most reliable information.
