Employment Law Fundamentals for Managers: 10 Ways to Stay out of Court

In this 75-minute interactive online training, your supervisors will learn how to:

  • Make smart (and legal) day-to-day decisions.

    From hiring to discipline to giving feedback, managers face employment law risks every day.

  • Comply with the 10 most important employment laws.

    Courts expect supervisors to understand and follow the FLSA, ADA, FMLA and more.

  • Avoid personal liability that hits their wallets.

    It’s not just a corporate issue … certain mistakes can cost managers their personal nest eggs.

An easy way to train your supervisors on how to manage legally

Do your supervisors know which job interview questions are illegal? Do they know how to respond to employees’ requests for leave? Or which words in performance reviews are almost guaranteed to trigger legal disputes? Do they know how to handle reasonable accommodation requests for both disability and religion?

If not, their lack of basic employment law knowledge is putting your organization (and your HR reputation) at a major risk.

On November 4, gather your management team for this comprehensive training on how to manage employees in the most legally safe way. The newly updated Employment Law Fundamentals webinar is the perfect way to help supervisors understand that their actions can inadvertently support lawsuits against your organization—and possibly against supervisors (or you) personally.

Bonus: If your organization does get sued, the court will ask if you’ve ever trained managers on their legal responsibilities. This simple 75-minute training is a good-faith defense that your HR department has done its part.
