Legal Aspects of Supervision

​Program Overview

Litigation and government enforcement in the employment-law arena have increased significantly in recent years — as have settlements, damage awards and fines. From equal employment opportunity to wage and hour issues, the workplace can become a potentially expensive minefield of liability. Designed specifically for non-HR supervisors, this course focuses on key employment law concepts and how they translate into day-to-day practices that minimize an organization’s exposure.

Module 2: Best management practices

  • Performance management
