While not specifically focused on wages settlement, this book provides insights into effective HR leadership, which can be valuable in the context of managing compensation. to check the latest editions of these books, as updates may have occurred since my knowledge cutoff date in January 2022. Additionally, consider consulting relevant local labor laws and seeking advice from HR professionals or legal experts in your specific industry and region.
