Learning the Law: Employment Law 101 for Managers

In this 75-minute interactive online training, give supervisors a training course that explains:

  • Employment laws that managers MUST know.

    They didn’t understand the law” is no defense in court. It’s your job to teach it.

  • Day-to-day legal decisions.

    From hiring to terminations, managers face employment law risks every day.

  • Good-faith defense for lawsuits.

    If your company gets sued, proving managers received this training will help prevent liability.

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. On February 2, gather your management team for this ideal beginning-of-the-year 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.
