Understanding the employment laws and regulations that affect your business is crucial. One oversight and you could open yourself up to employee lawsuits and government penalties. This first course breaks down the “alphabet soup” of federal laws that impact employers. You’ll walk away with a better understanding of your legal obligations and, just as important, clear direction on how to stay compliant.

Managers everywhere have experienced the frustration of making a hiring mistake. You could end up with an employee who isn’t a good fit or – worse – face a lawsuit due to a misstep you made. This course helps you understand the legal issues surrounding the hiring process and offers suggestions to help you select the best candidate. Upon completion, you’ll have the information you need to sail through every stage of hiring.
Course 2 Training Modules:
Classifying workers properly can be a difficult task. This section guides you through the process of determining which employees can be considered “exempt” from overtime laws under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). And it will help prevent you from crossing the legal line by accidentally treating independent contractors as employees. When you’re done with the course, you’ll know everything you need to classify your workers the right way.
Course 3 Training Modules:
This section focuses on the legal ins and outs of managing your employees. You’ll learn how to set up personnel files, develop company policies, track employee attendance, administer medical leave and much more. When you’re done, you’ll have a firm knowledge of your legal obligations – and expert guidance on how to be a more efficient, successful people manager.
Course 4 Training Modules:
Workplace harassment is a sensitive issue for employees — and a potentially expensive one for employers. Left unaddressed, harassment can hurt morale, lower productivity and even lead to damaging lawsuits. This course gives you a solid understanding of what you need to do to protect your employees and your business. You’ll discover how to promote a harassment-free workplace, train your staff and handle a complaint.
Course 5 Training Modules:
Addressing employee performance can be tough even for experienced managers. And when a situation calls for termination, the anxiety escalates – as does the legal risk. This course covers everything from documenting performance problems to what to say (and what not to say) during a termination meeting. In the end, you can proceed with confidence knowing you are serving the company’s best interest and staying within the limits of the law.
