Employees are often promoted into management roles with little training in human resources, yet managing people is a primary responsibility on which their success depends. If managers do not understand employment laws and concepts such as ADAAA, FCRA, implied contract, BFOQ, protected class, FLSA, or discrimination, they may be unintentionally placing their employers at risk. In this course, managers will learn about federal and state employment laws as well as the importance of implementing effective HR practices from employee hiring through separation. Special emphasis will be given to the importance of maintaining a harassment-free, discrimination-free workplace.
This course addresses the following soft skills: leadership, communication, being a team player, and resolving conflict.
This course provides 6 professional development credits (PDCs) for SHRM recertification. Documentation will be provided at the completion of the course.
