Learning the Law

Learning the Law:
Employment Law 101 for Managers

The most effective way to develop managers capable of legal obligations for 2022

Do your managers know what can legally be said to employees about COVID vaccines, tests, and privacy? Do they know which job interview questions are illegal? Do they know how to respond to employees’ requests for leave?

If not, their lack of basic employment law knowledge is putting your organization (and your HR reputation) at risk. Gather your management team for this ideal training on employment laws that every manager should know.

Learning the Law is the perfect way to help supervisors understand how their actions can inadvertently be supporting lawsuits against your organization, and possibly against the supervisors themselves.

Bonus: If your organization gets sued, the court will investigate to see if you’ve ever trained managers on their legal responsibilities. This simple 75-minute training is proof to the court that HR has done its part.

Agenda for Learning the Law:

  • Employment law 101. We’ll review the top 10 decisive laws and how managers can stay in compliance.
  • Timely new requirements. From COVID safety and vaccines to diversity and social media.
  • Hiring and firing. Learn the legal way to conduct these two most legally-risky areas for managers.
  • Performance reviews and communications. From casual conversations to reviewing documentation, learn what to say and NEVER say.
  • Personal liability. Yes, managers can get sued personally. Review how to avoid this worst-case scenario.
  • Manage difficult situations. From accommodation requests to long-term leave, learn how managers should react to these legal curveballs.
  • Handling "invisible" workers. Remote employees carry a whole new set of legal risks for managers.
