Overview to Stay Compliant Within Employment Laws

OnDemand Webinar (93 minutes)

You may know what the law is, make sure you know how to apply it.

Very little about labor and employment law is intuitive. Common sense is not always your best guide. In fact, instinctive reactions to situations can create legal difficulties. Human resources, which is the application of these laws to real labor and employment situations, complicates matters by introducing the human equation into the mix. Attempts to make employees feel less badly about discipline, avoid unpopular decisions, or reward certain employees can backfire. Further, human resources professionals seek legal advice not merely to determine what they cannot do legally, but to find out what they CAN do legally and how to implement their decisions in the best way practical.

The purpose of this topic is to educate you on the practical aspects of applying the law and implementing HR policies and practices. It will address the role of HR professionals and lawyers, the laws that affect human resources, the policies that need to be addressed, and problems that could require the assistance of attorneys and other HR professionals if you run a business. While the information will deal with many introductory concepts, it will also deal with the real-world issues that experienced business owners, attorneys, and HR professionals must address.
