HR Competencies

  • HR Expertise​


Utah is generally perceived to be an employer-friendly state. Thus, many businesses wrongly assume that there are no state-specific laws governing their employment practices. Do not fall victim to that incorrect assumption! In this class, Utah legal staff will address key Utah rules that every employer needs to know and comply with.


  • Rules to care about all the time during the employment relationship, such as Utah’s Antidiscrimination Act (including sexual orientation and pregnancy protections)
  • Rules to focus on at the beginning of the employment relationship, such as Utah’s Employment Selection Procedures Act, Post-Employment Restrictions Act (governing non-compete agreements), and E-Verify law
  • Rules to focus on throughout the employment relationship, such as Utah’s Drug & Alcohol Testing law, Weapons in the Parking Lot law, Internet Employment Privacy Act, and Payment of Wages Act
  • Rules to focus on near the end of the employment relationship, such as Utah’s At-will Employment rules and Final Paycheck law
