HR Competencies

  • HR Expertise

Objective

To provide class participants with a practical understanding of complex employment law issues that managers and supervisors must have to effectively supervise employees. Managers and supervisors are on the “front line” of an employer’s liability and defense. Courts have stated that failing to train managers and supervisors on basic employment law issues is an “extraordinary mistake.” Often, issues arise that have both legal and management consequences. This popular full day class provides front-line managers and supervisors with the knowledge they need to recognize when a situation presents potential legal issues and provides a hands-on application of employment law principles to workplace situations. Managers and supervisors will gain an understanding of how to supervise employees inside legal boundaries, when HR should be involved, and how their actions (or inaction) could lead to liability.
