Employment-based claims are on the rise again, and yesterday's responses simply haven't kept up with today's issues. Changing employee demographics, tight financial times and "too much information" from Internet sources has had a dramatic affect on how we do business. Business leaders -- including managers, supervisors and HR professionals -- who have a solid understanding of employment laws and effective workplace practices can significantly reduce their organization's risk of claims, while increasing employee productivity and morale.
This interactive workshop provides an overview of key employment laws and how they impact hiring practices, managing employee performance and when and how to discipline and discharge. Through real-life examples that reflect today's work environment and HR best practices, you will learn how to meet your organization's business objectives while minimizing legal risks.
