    HR Basics

    A Crash Course in Employment Law

    Employment laws are complicated. A manager or supervisor’s mistake can result in costly employee lawsuits and liability for the company. This seminar focuses on the issues that are most likely to get an employer into trouble. Designed to give a big picture review in a short amount of time, this seminar will help you avoid the many traps, potholes and landmines of employment law.

    This one-day seminar is for . . .  Business owners, managers and supervisors . . .  

    Management employees are usually at the center of an employment lawsuit.  The employment laws have little to do with common sense. When you “don’t know what you don’t know,” it is difficult to avoid liability. This seminar will help you spot red flags and provide solutions for common employee relations challenges.

    Anyone who Deals with HR Issues . . .

    Both novice and experienced HR professionals and support staff will benefit from the comprehensive overview and targeted practical solutions that they can take back to the workplace. In addition to building understanding of the fundamentals, we will discuss cutting edge hot topics arising from new statutes, regulations and case law.
