The Basics of HR Law
A One-Day Seminar
Meeting Code: PBE
In just one day, we'll cover the basics of HR law in a fast-paced, plain-English way that will provide a whole new level of understanding to anyone that has to deal with the thousands of facets of employment law.
It's HR 101 - and we take that as a BIG compliment!
Our previous attendees call this course, "HR 101" and they say it with a smile! It's a must-have foundation of knowledge everyone needs in today's complex business world. We cover everything from ADA ... to FLSA ... to fringe benefits, but we don't go in-depth into the tiny nuances of each law.
Instead, participants learn the basics of what the law means ... to whom the law applies ... and which agency enforces the law. Plus, they'll come back to the office armed with resources of information that they can immediately access when they need it.
What you'll have after this powerful session are employees that know the magnitude of HR law ... can converse with any employee about the issues safely ... and a dramatically reduced threat of mistakes, blunders and missteps due to ignorance that can land you and your company in hot water.
