This program educates the people who have the greatest opportunity to prevent discrimination and harassment in the workplace.
Supervisors and Managers have a unique responsibility for ensuring an organization’s legal compliance. Because they directly engage with employees on a day-to-day basis, they’re often the “eyes and ears” of the organization. This places them on the front line in mitigating legal risk.
This course identifies concepts of employment-at-will, hostile work environment, and reasonable accommodation. You will gain exposure to major federal and state employment laws such as the ADA Amendments Act, the Family Medical Leave Act, Wage and Hour laws and state sick leave requirements. Learn how to recognize situations that may pose legal risk, how to supervise employees within legal boundaries, when to get HR involved and how to respond appropriately when legal issues arise.
